When Hitomi takes a job on the cash register of a neighbourhood thrift store she finds herself drawn into a very idiosyncratic community There is Mr Nakano an enigmatic ladies' man with several ex wives; Masayo Mr Nakano's sister an artist who has never married; and I adore this writer She is appealing in a very individualistic particular introverted Japanese way that is reminiscent of Murakami s works yet entirely and uniuely her own I mention Murakami only because the authors share enough similarity in their character types and their descriptions of the small mundane rituals of daily life that it deserves an NB if you love Murakami s uirky characters and his descriptions of cooking simple meals and having nice long talks you will find much to love about Kawakami Otherwise her writing will probably make you want to toss your book into a pot of boiling spaghetti as you cook your nice simple meal This is only the second book I ve read of Kawakami s the first being Strange Weather in Tokyo and I am looking forward to reading all of those which have been translated into English I have just begun Manazuru too This one is a simple coming of age story about a young Japanese woman who works at at thrift shop and the three people who share her life during this time Takeo her young co worker for whom she develops a passion Mr Nakano the philosophical and philandering shop owner and Masayo Mr Nakano s sister who is a charming and rather endearing mediocre artist The characters are all so interesting in a uiet uirky never fully revealed way The two younger ones are in a state of almost constant bewilderment about themselves each other and everyone else around them Plot spoiler uh oh wait not needed There is no plot y all Just read it anyway Who needs plots I hate em myself
