A remaking of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights set in postwar Japan
A precise Novel starts off in long island within the Nineteen Sixties, the place we meet Taro, a relentlessly formidable jap immigrant attempting to make his fortune. Flashbacks and multilayered tales exhibit his existence: an impoverished upbringing as an orphan, his eventual upward thrust to wealth and success—despite racial and sophistication prejudice—and an obsession with a lady from an prosperous kinfolk that has haunted him all his lifestyles. A precise Novel then widens into an exam of Japan’s westernization and the emergence of a center class.
The winner of Japan’s prestigious Yomiuri Literature Prize, Mizumura has written a gorgeous novel, with love at its center, that unearths, primarily, the ability of storytelling.
