I'm going bananas for this new novel: The Lake
Having read several books by Banana Yoshimoto, I'm thrilled to see she has a new book coming out. Melville House says:
While The Lake shows off many of the features that have made Banana Yoshimoto famous—a cast of vivid and quirky characters, simple yet nuanced prose, a tight plot with an upbeat pace—it’s also one of the most darkly mysterious books she’s ever written.
Simple, quirky, dark, nuanced, and mysterious?! Color me there Now, if only the bookstore in my neighborhood hadn't closed. Grrr.
