Following on from my last post about Momoko Ando presenting 0.5mm at a special screening, here’s a recent announcement sent out by the Japan Foundation regarding a new Japan Now talk:
The Japan Foundation is delighted partner with Foyles and Modern Culture for this
special talk by author Hiromi Kawakami as part of Japan Now 2017
Hiromi Kawakami has been a long standing favourite of Foyles customers and booksellers alike. Perfectly constructed, poetic and moving, Strange Weather in Tokyo was the first of Kawakami’s novels to be published in English, introducing readers to the dreamlike state of her writing.
Nakano Thrift Shop is similar in its delicate and funny portrayal of Japanese life. Exploring the mystery that lurks in the ordinary, her second novel traces the seemingly imperceptible threads that weave together a community and the knots that bind us to one another.
Now in 2017 Pushkin Press will be publishing the highly surreal short story collection, Record of a Night too Brief – an anthology set to once again captivate its English readers.
Join us for a night of conversation with one of Japan’s most popular contemporary novelists.
Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0DT
Tickets are priced at £8 (or £5 for Foyles members). To purchase tickets, please visit the Foyles website
