Description
Aging writer Kogito Choko rekindles a childhood friendship with his estranged brother-in-law, the renowned filmmaker Goro Hanawa, in this 2010 novel by the Nobel Prize–winning author of Somersault and A Personal Matter. When Kogito receives a box of old tapes from Goro—recordings of youthful reminiscences—he is stunned to hear a suicide message from his cousin, just before he jumped to his death. Kogito will travel from the forests of southern Japan to the streets of Berlin, as he attempts to unravel the causes of this traumatic event.

"As in previous novels and with comparable mastery, [Kenzaburo] Oe deeply ponders love, sex, art, friendship, family, and death in a rich, psychologically acute rhapsody of narration anchored in personal calamities.”—Booklist (starred review)
