A typical and excellent novel by this author. Takes place mostly in Japan, tale told by a woman whose oldest daughter has just committed suicide; causes her to reminisce about the daughter's birth; includes enigmatic tale about an odd friend and her daughter.

Creepy and intriguing. This book had me wondering what really happened for hours afterwards. A very different side of this author than in The Remains of the Day.
