Family relationships, organ donation, celebration of differences, surrogacy all come to the fore with four sisters who are mourning their brother's death. All are at different stages of their lives, each with complicated histories but as they decide to research who has received their brother's organs, they discover what is really important to them. I found this novel extremely inspiring and I am so glad I read it.

This is a tiny little book - only 70 pages long - and you'll find it is just the thing to get yourself out of a reading slump. In three interconnected scenes, the book interrogates fertility, masculinity and marriage. Brimming with tension, mystery and the quirky twistedness that is characteristic of a Japanese novel, I found this novella utterly compelling.
