?I love, love, love If You Follow Me. It?s fearlessly honest, occasionally heartbreaking, and extremely funny, and I can?t recommend it highly enough.? ? Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times bestselling author of Prep and American Wife
?Graceful, smart, and filled with wonder, If You Follow Me is a heartfelt delight from beginning to end.? ? Michelle Richmond, bestselling author of The Year of Fog
Beautifully wrought and deftly written, If You Follow Me is the stunning debut novel from author Malena Watrous. It tells the story of Marina, who moves to Japan to teach English shortly after her father?s tragic suicide, and finds unexpected solace with her Japanese supervisor and seemingly indifferent neighbors. Fans of the works of Curtis Sittenfeld, Diana Spechler, and Min Jin Lee, as well as those interested in Japanese culture, will love If You Follow Me.
From the Back Cover:
Hoping to outpace her grief in the wake of her father's suicide, Marina has come to the small, rural Japanese town of Shika to teach English for a year. But in Japan, as she soon discovers, you can never really throw away your past . . . or anything else, for that matter.
If You Follow Me is at once a fish-out-of-water tale, a dark comedy of manners, and a strange kind of love story. Alive with vibrant and unforgettable characters?from an ambitious town matchmaker to a high school student-cum-rap artist wannabe with an addiction to self-tanning lotion?it guides readers over cultural bridges even as it celebrates the awkward, unlikely triumph of the human spirit.
