It’s frightening, what happened to the author late one night travelling on a dark road after an exhausting studio session, forced to suddenly stop because of two shadowy figures ahead. (You can read about the event in an article on her UK publisher's site, here.) Simon & Schuster, 2015

Benjamin Constable’s Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa (2013)


Imagine the Griffin and Sabine stories. Gallery Books - Simon & Schuster, 2013 But take away the artwork. And substitute notebooks for postcards. Now, combine that with the bizarre otherworldliness of Banana Yoshimoto's novels. Take their spirited heroines, and the matter-of-fact acceptance of a thin veil between the worlds.
