A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. From the author of Strange Weather in Tokyo comes this funny, heartwarming story about love, life, and human relationships that features a delightfull y offbeat cast of characters. Objects for sale at the Nakano Thrift Shop appear as commonplace as the sta ff and customers that handle them. But like those same customers and staff, they hold many secrets. If examined carefully, they show the signs of innu merable extravagancies, of immeasurable pleasure and pain, and of the deep mysteries of the human heart. Hitomi, the inexperienced young woman who works the register at Mr. Nakano' s thrift shop, has fallen for her coworker, the oddly reserved Takeo. Unsur e of how to attract his attention, she seeks advice from her employer's sis ter, Masayo, whose sentimental entanglements make her a somewhat unconventi onal guide. But thanks in part to Masayo, Hitomi will come to realize that love, desire, and intimacy require acceptance not only of idiosyncrasies bu t also of the delicate waltz between open and hidden secrets. Animating each delicately rendered chapter in Kawakami's playful novel is Mr. Nakano himself, an original, entertaining, and enigmatic creation whose compulsive mannerisms, secretive love life, and impulsive behavior defy all expectations.

The Swedish Academy lauded Oe for his "poetic force [that] creates an imagined world where life and myth condense to form a disconcerting picture of the human predicament today." His most popular book, A Personal Matter is the story of Bird, a frustrated intellectual in a failing marriage whose Utopian dream is shattered when his wife gives birth to a brain-damaged child. "In writing novels there is no substitute for maturity and moral awareness. Kenzaburo Oe has both."-Alan Levensohn, Christian Science Monitor.

13 Shikibu, Murasaki THE TALE OF GENJI
Tuttle Publishing 2011 4805308729 / 9784805308721 Paperback Very Good 
Written centuries before the time of Shakespeare and even Chaucer, The Tale of Genji marks the birth of the novel-and after more than a millennium, th is seminal work continues to enchant readers throughout the world. Lady Mur asaki Shikibu and her tale's hero, Prince Genji, have had an unmatched infl uence on Japanese culture. Prince Genji manifests what was to become an ima ge of the ideal Heian era courtier; gentle and passionate. Genji is also a master poet, dancer, musician and painter. The Tale of Genji follows Prince Genji through his many loves, and varied passions. This book has influence d not only generations of courtiers and samurai of the distant past, but ar tists and painters even in modern times-episodes in the tale have been inco rporated into the design of kimonos and handicrafts, and the four-line poem s called waka which dance throughout this work have earned it a place as a classic text in the study of poetry. This version by Kencho Suematsu was the first-ever translation in English. Condensed, it's a quarter length of the unabridged text, making it perfect for readers with limited time.
