Daredemonai tokoro kara no nagame
(The View from Nobody)

IGARASHI Mikio

[Japan]

A coastal town in Miyagi Prefecture, a few years after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of 2011. As aftershocks grow gradually stronger, the lives of residents are rocked by disturbing events . . . By an author who has remained in Tohoku since the disaster, this is a tale that vividly depicts the human survival instinct. Through such new themes as uprooted people and dementia, he continues to address the question “What is ‘I’?”
