Rachel Redford
The Oldie, April 2014

The skilled narration assures you that everything is real, but reality for ‘K’, a Tokyo teacher who sleeps with his pupils’ mothers, is ‘a cardigan with the buttons done up wrong’. ‘K’ is in love with Sumire, a needy aspiring novelist in clumpy workbooks, who looks on ‘K’ as her friend but is in love with Miu, an older woman hiding a curious past. Each layer of the mystery deepens the ramifications of isolation and love. Wonderful. © 2014 The Oldie

AudioFile, February 2014

Adam Sims projects the unrequited desire of the male narrator of this novel, featuring a love triangle of unfulfilled longing. Sims’s narration is melodic, dreamy, and wistful, characteristics that are all suitable, even necessary, for a first-person point of view that meanders through recollections of love gone awry. He treats female characters with the same steady tone he gives the male protagonist, rendering this an overall even performance. © 2014 AudioFile Read complete review
