A moving and unforgetable talke about greed, it's consequences, and the redeeming power of sacrifice. This book was a Barnes & Nobles Discover Selection. It has become one of my favorite books, I highly recommend it!
The "book description" sums up the basics well enough. This is an enjoyable and quietly compelling read. A tragedy. Author does a fine job transporting reader back into the subsistence mindset of this very small Japanese village. Short straightforward read.
