About this deal

I don't understand how the production company can't bother to find a Japanese descent actress/voice actor to read the part? Both parties are aware that the affair has a sell-by date, and even as Mizuki falls for Kiyoshi, it is obvious that part of the attraction is the freedom he represents, something that might not last if she were to leave her husband. Corvus Atlantic’s commercial fiction list which includes women’s, historical, romance, sci-fi, crime and thriller.

Once a vivacious young woman who sang in cabaret bars, she now struggles to meet the standard of motherly perfection and subtle elegance expected of Tokyo's housewives. Fault Lines is full of laugh-out-loud, irreverent humor, as well as heartstoppingly poignant, yet seemingly incidental, wisdom. The studio execs fawning all over her like they had absolutely no other person to give this part to? As an aside, I had to smile at the mention of a weight loss diet of natto and grated yam because if anything could dim my appetite, it would be natto. Naming income inequality as a principal cause of the crash has instant appeal for left-leaning critics of capitalism.While the narrator loves her children and cares for them well, she also expresses disappointments about the constraints of her life, which I liked given how women are taught to idolize motherhood and often feel pressured into motherhood. There really is no “plot”, rather this is just a glimpse into a short period of time where a woman contemplates her life, her marriage, and her role as a mother.

Realizing she has always been a fixer and a rescuer to those around her, Merritt tests her wings when she meets the renegade caretaker of a property in Northern California's Santa Cruz Mountains.This is an extremely important and insightful guide for anyone wrestling with the heartbreak of estrangement.

I think I’m not into the entire concept of romance and cheating, which is why I wasn’t catching on to this book as much as I wanted to.

Their affair is dreamy to read about: They meet in tucked-away neighborhoods like Kagurazaka, which is filled with cobblestoned streets, French cafes and historic geisha homes.
