Review - Fukushima Dreams

Fukushima Dreams - by Zelda Rhiando

Two hands reach out to each other - they are rendered as seismographs.
A gripping literary thriller set in post-tsunami Japan, where a missing child continues to haunt his parents long after the waves have receded. The secrets will out...

My Twitter pal Zelda has written a curious - and troubling - novel.

If you could use a natural disaster to escape the confines of your marriage, would you?

The book drifts in and out of fantasy and reality. I can't comment on the accuracy of the Japanese mannerisms, but the story is suffused with an other-worldly dreaminess.

At its heart, this is a story of coping with loss and the fallout - nuclear or emotional - of tragedy.

A fine beach-read.
