A beautiful little book. If the poet William Carlos Williams had been Japanese, he might have written it. Fair warning...if you must have action, adventure and plot...well, this book isn't for you. This is a quiet, very poetic little book about love and loss. I think my two cats enjoyed watching me read it.
