Autumn Reading

原っぱに風が吹く

a book i picked up at the last library book recycle.  i didn’t expect much from it, but when i started reading, i could hardly put it down.  in short, it’s a collection of short essays recalling the 60-year old author’s childhood days.  despite the generation difference, the views and habits of children remain much unchanged– i find myself smiling as bits and pieces of my own childhood float back to me as i read along.  it’s a fun book, but sadly, it’s only available in Japanese.

The Wind In The Playing-Field, Yasumasa Yamafuku, ISBN 4834006999

図書館の古本リサイクルで何気なく手に取ったこの一冊。読み始めたら案外おもしろくて、なかなかおろせない!当時60才の作者が子供の頃の思い出を描いたショートエッセイコレクションと言うところでしょうか。世代が違っても子供の視線や行動はそう変わらなく、自分の子供の頃も思い出させてくれる楽しい本です。
