Y leaves a mark Have A Good Night, Volume 1 on my list through the literary sense I have mixed feelings about this four star rating Spinning Tropics is not great literature it plows no new nor unusual literary ground But partf what motivates my reading f international novels is a search for works that enhance cultural understanding From this latter perspective Mochizuki s novel is a stunning success Hiro the main character is a Japanese woman teaching her native language in Vietnam She falls deeply in love much to her wn surprise with Yun a Vietnamese woman The relationship gets complicated in ways that "Engage The Reader S "the reader s Within the context f

St Aska Mochizuki vividly brings to life the buzz f motorcycles and the tastes f Vietnamese coffee and spicy papaya salads; the confines f the Vietnamese family; the lingering effects f long wars; the rich who ride the economic wave and the poor who are left behind Spinning Tropics is a lush and evocative story f an intoxicating love affair.
