    Marie, the protagonist, is the narrator of this story. Inasmuch Marie grows up in Japan at the seaside along with her cousin, Tsugumi, an invalid, charismatic, spoiled young woman who can be quiet cruel to other

    Not being a reader of Japanese, I'll assume that the translator of "Goodye Tsugumi" knew far better than I what words to use.

    The symbolism starts early. Natural perceptions inform before the narrative starts. The characters cross the stage early. The protagonist tells all early. She is kind beyond belief. The book is making the reader look at our exit from this plane. I have trouble grasping a non believer's exposition. A giant. Of.a book. Judge for yourself.

Miss Banana has done it again, creating a fictional seaside town with dogs and people that I've loved reading about. That Tsugumi is such a cow but you like her because Maria loves her. I don't know if it was the translation from the Japanese or if that was the intention to create a blasé and harsh form of address b

    I enjoyed this book on most fronts. A touching tale well told the only discord was the way the American/English translation brought too much American atmosphere thereby losing what I believe would have been a strong Japan
