With the arrival of January, comes Tony’s January in Japan. Among the festivities he has planned for us are two read-alongs. The first is a book by the same author who wrote The Briefcase, which I found to be a tender and beautiful novel. This one is entitled Manazuru by Hiroma Kawatami. The date for discussing Manazuru with Tony is January 15.
The second read-along for January in Japan is Yasunari Kawabata’s novel, The Sound of The Mountain. Discussion begins on January 29.
And so to Don Quixote I am definitely adding The Sound of The Mountain. I hope to find time for Manazuru as well.
