While grateful for having some New Yorker content beautifully read, I was disappointed that the feature on radiation in Japan, a major offering, was not offered. Would very much encourage the offering of just one additional feature story as a routine benefit.
I wouldn't start with this late novel. Don't want to say too much about it, it has a fascinating mood of impending doom, nostalgia, frustration. I even got caught up in the plot/drama, but do not think it an entirely successful work, more of a fable than character study. I am devoted to this author and his tonality and especially when the characters work as realistic persons. Many pleasing things in the prose descriptions, the evocations of season, time of day, a floating world.
