Facing the bridge
Amo, an African kidnapped to Europe as a boy, and Tamao, a Japanese exchange student in Germany, live in different centuries but are being followed by the same shadow ... Kazuko, a young professional tourist, is lured to Vietnam by a mysterious postcard ... On the Canary Islands, a nameless translator battles a banana grove and a series of Saint Georges ...
These three tales by Yoko Tawada cross cultures and histories with a sensuous playfulness as sweet as a box of candied hearts - even Michael Jackson makes an appearance.
