Just a quick update on reviews I’ve been writing, the from the Japan Times and one from Shoreline of Infinity. Yukio Mishima’s The Sound of Waves is not his best book but is one of his most popular, certainly with filmmakers. Takeshi Kaiko turned his experiences as a journalist covering the Vietnam War into a wonderful Graham Greene-esque novel and Ko Unoki delivers mixed results in his overview of Japan-US relations through history. Hannu Rajaniemi’s short story collection Invisible Planets is a thoughtful and exciting book, well worth checking out.
