The Things She Owned by Katherine Tamiko Arguile

I’m not the right person to read or review this, it’s way out of any of the areas in which I read. Superior chick lit might be the most apt description? I bought it because the author owns a little cafe complete with bookshelves in Adelaide CBD: Booknook and Bean. Isn’t that as good a reason as any to buy a book?!

That said, I read the whole thing in next to no time, so it’s eminently readable and will be a good choice for anybody looking for an easy read and/or something with a lot of interesting background on Japan, particularly at the end of WWII and the subsequent years.

I bought it during lockdown and Imprints bookseller, also in the CBD, was kind enough to deliver it and a Nick Cave book, adding some cheer to those strange days.
