Heaven by Mieko Kawakami

Praised by Haruki Murakami as his favorite young novelist, Kawakami is a rising star in the world of Japanese literature, with her first translated novel, Breasts and Eggs, making critical waves last year. In Heaven, Kawakami follows a 14-year-old boy as he endures relentless bullying at the hands of his classmates while also finding solace in a girl who is bullied herself. Together the two develop a precious bond to counter the violence in their lives and ponder what constitutes true strength. Heaven is a somber but beautiful piece of philosophical fiction. — Tori
