❤️🎉 Huuuuuge congratulations to Yu Miri, just named to the National Book Award longlist for Translated Literature!!!🎉❤️The surreal, devastating story of a homeless ghost who haunts one of Tokyo's busiest train stations, TOKYO UENO STATION has been called "glorious" @nytbooks and "an urgent reminder of the radical divide between rich and poor in postwar Japan." @guardian ❤️ Our favorite quote of all: "One thing Yu can do is write. She is simultaneously a social outcast and a literary star, a dark, brooding presence on the bookshelves. A creative genius." @nytimes 🎉 Congratulations to Yu and her wonderful translator Morgan Giles on the @nationalbookfoundation longlist!
