Of all time.
And our bookstore didn't carry it...
So!

What better than to bring it back than with a good ol' staff pick.

A Japanese classic, Yoshimoto brings stillness, beauty and originality in storying about death, self, friendship, and love. "

Published: Harper Perennial - September 6th, 2022

Collins writes about people and how they want to be seen, how they want to be loved, how they want to love, not only others but themselves. But it's not just about the love...it's the complicated nature of what it means to be with another and oneself, written in such a poetic, orchestrated, but sucker-punch kind of way. I don't do it justice, but read it. Please! Just read it!
