Vacation Reading

While on vacation in a warm and sunny part of the world, I've been reading this….

Lizard by Japanese author, Banana Yoshimoto--
a collection of six short stories

....in the company of this visitor.

I picked up Lizard (the book) at the New York City outpost of Kinokuniya, the Japanese bookstore on Sixth Avenue, across from Bryant Park.  Yoshimoto’s work is compelling; these simply written stories with haunting subjects, such as the desirability of forgetting, linger in the mind of this reader.

More to come soon on this inviting bookstore, but in the meantime, a very Happy New Year to the readers of Stacked-NYC, or as I learned to say while visiting the store:

Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu.
