Naoya Shiga, Ted Goossen
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Canongate Books Ltd
An autobiographical novella recounting the move towards reconciliation between a father and son; translated for the first time in English
Reconciliation, published here for the first time in the English language, is an understated masterpiece of the Japanese ‘I novel’ tradition (a confessional literary form). Naoya Shiga’s novella is a quietly devastating reflection on all kinds of reconciliation: from his own familial reunion, to the universal need to reconcile ourselves to the inevitability of ageing, loss and death.
