Praise for Rainbirds

“Luminous, sinister, and page-turning all at once. I loved it.” 
—Kate Hamer, internationally bestselling author of The Girl in the Red Coat and The Doll Funeral 

“A beautiful mystery setup with a complex, magical love story.” 
—Eka Kurniawan, award-winning author of Beauty Is a Wound and Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash

“A beautiful, well-crafted story, Rainbirds is an exploration of grief, love and loss. Clarissa Goenawan has written a powerful debut novel that will leave readers craving more.” 
Hollie Overton, internationally bestselling author of Baby Doll and The Walls

“Like the imaginary town in Japan in which it takes place, Rainbirds possesses a charm that is at once cloistered, quiet, and mysterious. Carefully crafted and paced, the novel captivates with its reflective, dreamlike tone. A promising debut from Clarissa Goenawan.” 
—Dee Lestari, award-winning singer-songwriter and author of the Supernova series 

Rainbirds is that rarest of debut novels—confident, transportive, and utterly enthralling. Clarissa Goenawan explores the mysteries of small-town Japan, drawing readers in with understated prose, then ensnaring with a subtle spell, exposing, grain by grain, the secrets behind a young woman’s death.”  
—Barry Lancet, award-winning author of The Spy Across the Table and Japantown

“A hauntingly moving story of loss and alienation.”
—Jake Arnott, internationally bestselling author of The Long Firm and The House of Rumour

Rainbirds is a deeply immersive novel: I lost myself in Goenawan’s masterful rendering of a sleepy Japanese town.”
—Elisa Lodato, author of An Unremarkable Body
