Product Specification & Summary

Set in Post-War Japan, the book revolves around two single children Hajime and Shimamoto, the latter of whom is affected by polio. They both share a close bond since their kindergarten days but are forced apart when Hajime moves away. A decade later, we meet Hajime who lives in Tokyo. He has become a successful businessman and is married and has two wonderful children. The story takes a turn with the reappearance of Shimamoto.

The beautiful Shimamoto captures the fancy of Hajime yet again and Hajime is deeply overwhelmed by her return. Their mutual attraction threatens to change their lives.

Is Shimamoto living in the past? Is he living a fantasy? Is Shimamoto real or a figment of his imagination? Which one will he chose - his current family or his love from the past? The questions are complex, and so are the answers.

The unforgettable memories of the past, the sweet fantasies of ideal love and the many unanswerable questions in the lives of protagonist unveil the surrealism in the novel.

The book, South Of The Border, West Of The Sun, was first published in 1992. The novel has been well received for its interesting portrayal of complex emotions and for its contemplative tone.
