Pilgrimage Road - To the Land of Dreams That Never Come True
[About the product]
—"Absence, the too-vacant journey of time" —
In a deserted town where only the crows of Shakotan Peninsula stand out, the images of my grandfather and my younger self emerge like a heat haze. In the city of Sapporo, visited to see my sister's ashes instead of my wife's, I stumble into a mirage of life and death. The story of 'me', accumulating and layering memories like waves pushing back in the days after losing my wife. What lies there is a hometown in name only, memories that are like illusions, and the lingering image of a life filled with death—"Yukiahi", "Zankei", "Toshio Shimao" and so on. This is a short story collection featuring seven pieces that drift along the abyss of life and time, brought to you by the author who has carved out the literary landscape with sharp sensibilities.
