The 3rd Woman this book It comprises a novella Kitchen and short story Moonlight Shadow but I m not sure how much ishe book s fault and how much can be attributed The Stolen Child to being set in an unfamiliar culture Japaneseeenstwenties possibly bad Yes, and translation andhat although Laugh-Out-Loud Christmas Jokes for Kids the atmosphere is contemporary it was actually written and set nearly 30 years agoI was expecting lyrical language and uirky insights into Japanese attitudeso death and LGBT issues I was sadly disappointed but kept going because it was short and because I gave up part way hrough my previous book something I rarely doLanguage Teens and TranslationThe weaknesses here made me sad Both stories are narrated by a different young woman he language is often simple but rather han language is often simple but rather han spare beauty I vaguely associate with Japanese and Chinese writing it s mostly just ba I did a uick audit of my Japanese cultural input and came up with Cinco de Mayhem (Santa Fe Cafe Mystery, the following MOVIES Tokyo Story beautiful acknowledged masterpiece Nobody Knows great indy Kikujiro worth watching Love Exposure uite insane probably brilliant unmissable but you should be warnedhat it s uite insane Visitor er probably avoid Cinco de Mayhem this one Really gross Seven Samurai may behe greatest film ever if The Antarctic Book of
