World Literature Today just wrote an incisive and thoughtful review of renowned Okinawan novelist Shun Medoruma's recently translated novel, In the Woods of Memory. Much appreciated!
Here's a snippet from the book review:
"This attention to the rich inner lives of characters is one of the places where the novel shines. It isn’t a dialogue-heavy novel; instead, Medoruma focuses on showing how characters interpret and interact with the world around them and where they seem to believe their place in that world is."
