Well, not really, but I’m looking for books outside my usual categories. I need recommendations for:
2. Novels set in Japan that are not Memoirs of a Geisha (already read that). I like historical fiction; Japanese-influenced fantasy would be cool (like Tales of the Otori, also read); in a pinch, a good non-fiction Japan-related book will do. My only other firm constraint is a book less than 400 pages long. After A Suitable Boy, I want something on the much shorter side. Very much shorter.
Thank’ee, one and all.
A virtual cookie for the first one who gets the literary allusion in the title. My husband is not allowed to play (sorry, dear).
