Incredible. A love letter to New York, both a paean and vicious critique for materialism, a skin care guide, a romance, a tragedy, a savage takedown and nuanced guide to globalism, a comedy, a critique and microcosm of religion and patriarchy. “Why I left New York” for the Coronavirus era

Really just incredibly amazing and inspiring. A true leader for a more gracious time. Also, a very readable book for everyone from the uninformed to experts. Deeply human, as well.

Eminently confusing, brutally well written, somewhat incomprehensible

The Emissary | Y?ko Tawada
Pickpick

A beautiful, warming little book that has the cathartic effect of crying. Incredibly and impeccably translated. You just know you‘ll read it again one day, as if with an old friend

WOW. WOWOWOW. This book reignites all of fiction. Brilliant beyond words. Just READ IT!

BlameJennyJane I‘m so torn about this one- it really seems to divide readers into “loved it” and “hated it”. I‘ve seen it on so many best books of lists. I‘ve gotta stack it! 2mo
LTOC It‘s one of those books where even if you hate it, you respect it. Pulls of things few books dare to 2mo

A sad disappointment. The first book inspired pathos, while this was just pathetic

One of the most terrifying and upsetting books I‘ve ever read. Absolutely genius. Will never forget it. Reached into my soul and tore it to pieces. You can literally feel the lies and evil vibrating throughout this book

BarbaraBB I love this author! 2mo
