I loved this collection of short stories (actually they are more novellas) and much credit must go to the translator. Taguchi really explores the minds of the characters and presents us with uncomfortable facts about our own lives and attitudes. The story of the nurse from the abortion clinic, the hoarder’s house, and the teenagers in the forest on the slopes of Fuji will stay with me forever.
