If Cats Disappeared From The World by Kawamura Genki

If Cats Disappeared From The World by Kawamura Genki

Review by Morgane Chinal-Dargent

This novel is a smart yet deep reflexion over life, love and the capacity to let go of what is not truly necessary to give meaning to our existences.

The Woman in the Dunes by Abe Kobo

The Woman in the Dunes by Abe Kobo

Review by George Mullins

Abe purposefully encourages readers to seek a profusion of interpretations when attempting to comprehend the story’s highly profound and impactful climax. The Woman in the Dunes is a deeply thought-provoking story, which has not lost its relevance to the contemporary world.

Robata: Japanese Home Grilling by Silla Bjerrum

Robata: Japanese Home Grilling by Silla Bjerrum

Review by Niraja Singh

This beautifully-illustrated book introduces you to the art of this Japanese cuisine and teaches you how to cook this way in your own home, whether cooking on an authentic robata grill, your own barbecue or your oven grill. Choose from classic yakitori (chicken cooked on skewers), traditional Japanese fish robata dishes such as Miso Black Cod or a wonderful selection of vegetarian robata dishes.
