GIVE ME A LIST GIVE IT TO MEEEE
Oh, you fool.
Hm. For you specifically, maybe start with Banana Yoshimoto: Goodbye Tsugumi, Lizard, or The Lake. Kawabata’s Beauty and Sadness is…
This is a beautiful list. Can I mention The Housekeeper and the Professor by Ogawa Yoko ? I don’t know what the english translation was like but it was gorgeous in swedish. (I quite like The Face of Another by Abe Kobo actually but it might be too much for Liz. In my mind Abe is catalogued together with Dasai Osamu and Mishima for somewhat unclear reasons.)
