I’ve never read a Mieko Kawakami book yet, although I’ve seen nothing but good reviews of books by this author. They give me an absurdist vibe and I cannot explain why. But I know that I want to get started on them, especially Breasts and Eggs, her most recent book that came out last year. There’s a strange kind of excitement and intrigue that takes hold when Kawakami’s books are in question. And so it is with All the Lovers in the Night, her newest book that releases on 12 May. I have a gut feeling that this is going to be a great place to start, if the blurb and the cover are anything to go by.
