Dreams of Love
A temporary worker, a newly wed, a middle-aged woman whose husband has gone bankrupt...the seven stories in this collection present a range of women sinking different kinds of love in their respective environments.
Kawakami has a formidable talent for prose. The sparks that fly forth whenever the emotions of women living in our age brush up against some facet of the world surrounding them are earnestly generated through each line of her work, leaving lingering arcs behind.
