The Bear and the Paving Stone, Paperback / softback Book

The Bear and the Paving Stone Paperback / softback


Winner of the prestigious Akutagawa Prize, three dream-like tales of memory and warVisiting a friend in the French countryside, a man finds himself cast into the quandaries of historical whim, religious identity, and seeing without sight; a walk along the seashore, upon the anniversary of a death, becomes a reverie on building sandcastles; and an innocent break-in at the ruins of an archbishop's residence takes a turn towards disaster. In three stories that prove the unavoidable connections of our past, Toshiyuki Horie creates a haunting world of dreams and memories where everyone ends up where they began - whether they want to or not.
