Oooh, a new Joy Fielding, is it? I OD'd on Fielding a couple of years ago when I read a whole stack of Joy Fielding novels back to back and came to the conclusion that her novels are best enjoyed, say, once a year. At least for me. But I agree: she keeps the shocks 'n' jolts coming. A great page-turner author.Originally Posted by srs_in_Oregon;3236621;
I'm currently reading "Autofiction" by a young Japanese writer called Hitomi Kanehara. It's a pretty disturbing look into a young woman's mind, but it is also a playful, slightly postmodern take on fiction within the fiction (I could have just written metafiction, couldn't I? ) Very effective and well-written! If you're interested in contemporary Japanese fiction, I'd definitely recommend Hitomi Kanehara.
Any Haruki Murakami fans here btw?
