31: Lizard

by Banana Yoshimoto

a collection of 6 short stories.

i keep trying to diagnose, well not diagnose, but dissect her writing.

It’s strangely optimistic in the worst of the conditions. That’s a weird feeling. You kind of know that it’s all gonna hit the fan but while it hasn’t, it’s alright….

I do feel sorry for most of her characters most of the time, but all of her characters make it eventually, and with a soul mate in tact.

nice, she writes a lot about lovers like that, she writes about them as if education/job/status doesn’t matter. Soul mates really exist in her novels.

interesting six little stories.
