Week 2 of our Man Asian Literary Prize 2011 longlist reviewing project (whew!) ….
Matt of A Novel Approach is off and running with:
Banana Yoshimoto‘s The lake (from Japan), which is high in my priority list as I’ve read Yoshimoto before and I’m particularly interested in Japanese literature.
And Fay of Read, Ramble with
Tarun J Tejpal‘s The valley of masks (from India), about which she has some reservations. Will others of us feel the same?
I hope, all being well, to post my first one next week, but don’t hold your breath. Life has a habit of getting in the way!
