Currently reading / currently loving

I adore Banana Yoshimoto for a variety of reasons. The first being, she named herself Banana. + 47 points to her. The second being, I've never tired of her words since stumbling upon her work in high school. + 130 points to her. The third being, her writing style is deceptively simple yet carries so much beauty and depth. + 1954 points to her. The fourth being, one of my dearest friends (who coincidentally is returning to Toronto from Israel today for 10 weeks!) always reminds me that Banana's work is translated more into Italian than English. + 65789 points to her. The fifth being, she's collaborated with Yoshitomo Nara. + 769463 points to her.
