Sobre o livro
Both startlingly restless and immaculately compact,Manazuru paints the portrait of a woman on the brink of her own memories and future.
Twelve years have passed since Keis husband, Rei, disappeared and she was left alone with her three-year-old daughter. Her new relationship with a married manthe antithesis of Reihas brought her life to a numbing stasis, and her relationships with her mother and daughter have spilled into routine, day after day. Kei begins making repeated trips to the seaside town of Manazuru, a place that jogs her memory to a moment in time she can never quite locate. Her time there by the water encompasses years of unsteady footing and a developing urgency to findsomething.
Through a poetic style embracing the surreal and grotesque, a quiet tenderness emerges from these dark moments.Manazuru is a meditation on memory—a profound, precisely delineated exploration of the relationships between lovers and family members.
