Please join Book Club for a discussion AND potluck/movie viewing of Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa (also known as Dorian Sukegawa and Tetsuya Akikawa). You can find the book on Amazon here.
“Sukegawa―enabled by Watts’s lucid translation―tells an endearing, thoughtful tale about relationships and the everyday meaning of life. Readers in search of gently illuminating fare―e.g., Shion Miura’s The Great Passage, Jeff Talarigo’s The Pearl Diver―will appreciate this toothsome treat.” — Library Journal
“Although Tokue’s past is a reflection of a dark chapter of Japanese history, her wisdom, patience, and kindness shape this touching and occasionally wistful novel. Through Tokue’s story, Sukegawa eloquently explores the seeds of biases and challenges us to truly listen to the natural world and the messages it artfully hides.” — Booklist
We look forward to seeing you all on August 26 at 3:00pm. Please RSVP for the address.
Yay books !
