Ladies and gents, you’re going to hearing a lot more from this woman in the coming months because she’s the author of our next title, Goodbye Madame Butterfly: Sex, Marriage and the Modern Japanese Woman. If you think you know Japanese women, think again. Sumie Kawakami’s book will give you a whole new perspective.
Some of you may remember Sumie’s writing from our first book, Kuhaku & Other Accounts from Japan. She wrote the ‘Floating Feeling’ pieces about women cheating on their husbands. Goodbye Madame Butterfly expands on that theme and takes a broader look at women [.d] from young people in their 20s to the middle aged [.d] and their relationships with men.
The book will be in stores this fall, but stay tuned here for special offers and events beginning this summer.
