Hadley’s December Recommendation

divingThe Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa

“This collection of three short stories is well crafted and thought provoking.”

From Kirkus Reviews: “A masterfully twisted triptych of dark novellas marks the American debut of a critically acclaimed Japanese fiction writer.  While Ogawa’s novellas aren’t technically linked, they are bound thematically—in each, a female loner is driven to explore the dark underbelly of her otherwise normal life…The surreal plotlines of the three pieces interact brilliantly, underscoring the utter desperation to which extreme loneliness can lead.  A haunting collection, and a perfect example of the power of short fiction.”
