Reviews

"From the frantic streets of Tokyo to the surreal silence of rural Japan, Christopher Barzak spins the familiar yarn of the everyday world into a magical universe. Following in the themes of his stunning debut, One for Sorrow, Barzak once again tackles loneliness and longing, and elegantly blurs the divide between the living and the dead. The Love We Share Without Knowing is haunting, strange, and utterly surprising from the first page to the last."--Michelle Richmond, author of The Year of Fog and No One You Know

"Barzak's sympathy and humor, his awareness, his easeful vernacular storytelling, are extraordinary." --Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn

"Exquisite and mysterious...From its beautiful title to its sad and haunted characters, The Love We Share Without Knowing limns the depths of the human need to be loved-and to be truly understood and accepted by those we love. A beautiful, enchanted book."--Booklist, starred review "In this follow-up to his notable debut, One for Sorrow, Barzak offers an otherworldly novel made up of linked short stories set in contemporary Japan. Barzak's varied players spin their stories of love, grief, and growing up in first-person narratives that artfully collide with each other to stunning emotional effect. In one narrative thread, a teenage boy lost in Tokyo is led home by an ethereal girl in a fox costume; he later discovers she is dead. The childhood best friend of the fox girl is a casualty of her planned group suicide, but not in the way she anticipates. The author finds rich territory in situating his characters in places steeped in personal loss and letting them fumble toward acceptance of their own frailties." -- Library Journal
