Some brief overview of book

From one of the most significant contemporary Japanese writers, a haunting, dazzling novel of loss and rebirth "Yuko Tsushima is one of the most important Japanese writers of her generation." Foumiko Kometani, The New York Times I was puzzled by how I had changed. But I could no longer go back . .

. It is spring. A young woman, left by her husband, starts a new life in a Tokyo apartment.

Territory of Light follows her over the course of a year, as she struggles to bring up her two-year-old daughter alone. Her new home is filled with light streaming through the windows, so bright she has to squint, but she finds herself plummeting deeper into darkness, becoming unstable, untethered. As the months come and go and the seasons turn, she must confront what she has lost and what she will become.

At once tender and lacerating, luminous and unsettling, Yuko Tsushimas Territory of Light is a novel of abandonment, desire, and transformation. It was originally published in twelve parts in the Japanese literary monthly Gunzo, between 1978 and 1979, each chapter marking the months in real time. It won the inaugural Noma Literary Prize.
