The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto

I’ve been a fan of Yoshimoto since stumbling upon Kitchen nearly eight years ago. She remains one of my favorite writers, and The Lake reminds me why. Her prose is uncomplicated and her voice earnest, giving the reader an intimate and delightful vantage point from which to enjoy her quirky characters. With six long years between the Japanese and English versions of this short novel, I’m trying to take it in as slowly as I can.
