It’s been a long time in the making, but we’re finally reviewing one of Japan’s most famous novels: Kawabata Yasunari’s, “Snow Country”. As one of Terrance’s absolute favorite books and only recently read by Christopher, we discuss the finer points of the novel, its context, and what we make of the imagery and plot.

Nice comments from Terrance encouraging me to read actually the [Japanese] book. Borders divide usually territories but since they are remaining in our mind they are often cognitive and therefore impact our behavior. People might want to avoid the Snow Country even the snow has been melted away. Exciting to follow people crossing borders.
Thanks for the comment Rolf. Its a goal of mine to read the Japanese version as well!
