Mild Vertigo by Mieko Kanai

Sale price£12.99


Housewife Natsumi leads a small, unremarkable life in aA?modern Tokyo apartment with her husband and two sons:A?she does the laundry, goes on trips to the supermarket,A?visits friends and gossips with neighbours. Tracing herA?conversations and interactions with her family and friendsA?as they blend seamlessly into her own infernally buzzingA?internal monologue,A?Mild VertigoA?explores the dizzyingA?reality of being unable to locate oneself in the endlessA?stream of minutiae that forms a lonely life confined to aA?middle-class home, where both everything and nothingA?happens. With shades of Clarice Lispector, Elena FerranteA?and Lucy Ellmann, this verbally acrobatic novel by theA?esteemed novelist, essayist and critic Mieko Kanai ?_" whoseA?work enjoys a cult status in Japan ?_" is a disconcerting andA?radically imaginative portrait of selfhood in late-stageA?capitalist society.
Binding: Paperback / softback
