Fukushima Dreams - by Zelda Rhiando
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.
