Description

Though their house was new, the wall had been there a long time.

In these two stories, which have never before been translated into English, Tsushima shows how memories, dreams and fleeting images describe the borders of our lives.

Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson; essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous; taking us from the deep South to modern Japan, New Yorks underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space.

    lockquote>You're afraid of the water that stole your husband, but all you can do is consort with it. It's always around you. As far as you're concerned, he didn't die, he turned to water. What happens on land vanishes in water, and the reverse is true, too.
    This collection includes two short stories:

    The watery realm: 4 stars. I loved Tsushima's slow-paced, delicate prose, starkly juxtaposed with some harrowing reminiscences of her childhood - the kind that usually see the light after being evoked by the most inconsequential of details. Her intimate writing captivated me completely, as she gradually reveals her side of the story. Osamu Dazai's presence lingered in her memory, just like his inhuman book in ours.

    Of dogs and walls: 2.5 stars. This time, too slow. Unexpected ending which poses an interesting issue, but I didn't enjoy the story until the last two pages. One of the main themes is death but far from the quiet and beautiful Kawabatian style, the writing felt sluggish to the point of tedium.
