Reviews

"Ogawa is original, elegant, very disturbing." --Hilary Mantel, author of WOLF HALL

"I've been telling everyone about this book. . . . It's a story about love, which is quite different from a love story. It's one of the most beautiful novels." --Junot Diaz on The Housekeeper and the Professor

"Gorgeous, cinematic. . . This novel has all the charm and restraint of any by Ishiguro or Kenzaburo Oe, and the whimsy of Murakami." --Los Angeles Times on The Housekeeper and the Professor

"Strangely charming, flecked with enough wit and mystery to keep us engaged throughout." --The Washington Post Book World on The Housekeeper and the Professor

"Still waters run dark in these bright yet eerie novellas, whose crisp, almost guileless prose hides unexpected menace." --The New York Times Book Review on The Diving Pool

"Exquisitly disturbing . . . Ogawa steadily builds the tension to an unexpected crescendo." --Elle on The Diving Pool

"Ogawa writes in a lean, muscular way that goes deep, exploring how malevolence coexists with everyday impulse. . . . She creates a memorable unease." --Los Angeles Times on The Diving Pool
