By Minae Mizumura,Juliet Winters Carpenter

A remaking of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights set in postwar Japan
 
A real Novel starts off in big apple within the Sixties, the place we meet Taro, a relentlessly bold jap immigrant attempting to make his fortune. Flashbacks and multilayered tales exhibit his lifestyles: an impoverished upbringing as an orphan, his eventual upward push to wealth and success—despite racial and sophistication prejudice—and an obsession with a lady from an prosperous relatives 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 stunning novel, with love at its middle, that unearths, particularly, the ability of storytelling.
