About this product
- DescriptionWhen rewned translator Hanne Schubert falls down a flight of stairs, she suffers an unusual condition- the loss of her native language. Speaking only Japanese, a language she learned later in life, she leaves for Japan. There, to Hanne's shock, the Japanese velist whose work she recently translated confronts her publicly for sabotaging his work. Reeling, Hanne seeks out the inspiration for the author's vel - a tortured, chimerical actor, once a master in the art of Noh Theater. Through their passionate, volatile relationship, Hanne is forced to reexamine how she has lived her life, including her estranged relationship with her daughter. In elegant prose, Nina Schuyler offers a deeply moving and mesmerizing story about language, love, and the transcendence of family.
