    One thought on “Facing the Bridge”

    1. Absolutely amazing! This book is comprised of three short stories and seems to be the perfect marriage of her two previous books translated into English from The Japanese and The German. The way Tawada intertwines issues of race, history, alienation, sexuality, with fable, myth, humor, and absurdity is sheer brillance. Although I wanted to read this slowly I couldn't help rushing through it because I simply couldn't put it down. The afterword, written by the translator is surprisingly interestin [...]

    2. Tawada describes the construction of a "tourist race" - Japanese trying to class themselves apart from other Asians, in order to approach Whiteness. With the other two stories, I'm not sure what she's ultimately trying to say or whether it works.

    3. Tawada is an extremely gifted writer. Every single story I've read from her has been in a different style from different perspectives and each one is tremendously successful.

    4. A peculiar book - very good, not Great, yet I got the rare feeling I often get with Gene Wolfe's fiction that there's a vital enigma in the work that I can barely make out the outlines of.
