Anyone read any books by this guy? I finished "Some Prefer Nettles" and it was brilliant. Aside, what of Natsume Soseki, Yukio Mishima, or more currently, Haruki Murakami. I've read most of his books. I'd be keen to share my enthusiasm with yours on the vast expanses that is Japanese literature. Strangers By Taichi Yamada Middle-aged, jaded and divorced, TV scriptwriter Harada returns one night to the dilapidated downtown district of Tokyo where he grew up. There, at the theatre, he meets a likable man who looks exactly like his long-dead father. And so begins Harada's ordeal, as he's thrust into a reality where his parents appear to be alive at the exact age they had been when they had died so many years before. I'm getting this next.
