Praise for The Briefcase

“I’m hooked on The Briefcase, a sentimental novel about the friendship, formed over late nights at a sake bar, between a Tokyo woman in her late thirties and her old high school teacher… I can only imagine what wizardry must have gone into Allison Markin Powell’s translation.”—Lorin Stein, The Paris Review Daily

“A dream–like spell of a novel, full of humour, sadness, warmth and tremendous subtlety. I read this in one sitting and I think it will haunt me for a long time.” —Amy Sackville

“In quiet, nature–infused prose that stresses both characters’ solitude, Kawakami subtly captures the cyclic patterns of loneliness while weighing the definition of love.”—Booklist
