Description

In him, she rediscovers freedom, friendship, a voice, and the neon, electric pulse of the city she has always loved. Going in i didn't expect much, but honestly I was completely mesmerised by this story, im unsure how to explain why this book was so good because its nothing special or full of action, its simple, kind, a heartwarming story about a mum, her kids, her family and her emotions.

After a time, she missed her family and decided to come back to Japan, but to move out of the family home instead and assert her independence. While at Auburn she wrote a column for the student newspaper, The Auburn Plainsman, that favored integration. He exposes a system where America’s growing inequality and thin social safety net create tremendous political pressure to encourage easy credit and keep job creation robust, no matter what the consequences to the economy’s long-term health; and where the U. For me it's the strong sense of place and Japanese culture that makes this short novel a worthy addition to the never-ending body of fiction on marital and domestic dissatisfaction.Mizuki wasn’t a bad person for pursuing this friendship with another man, but her husband also wasn’t a bad person for working hard all the time. Largely ignored by the other adult in her life, Mizuki spends the first chapters of Fault Lines shuffling her two young children around a sprawling metropolis where she doesn't fit in, and passing the evenings steaming over her husband's obliviousness. I carried this with me when we went to Seattle but was unable to read much at all as I was too worried and distracted. As happens in marriage sometimes, and exacerbated by Tatsuya’s high stress, time intensive position and her frustrations as a wife and mother, they’ve grown more and more distant.

An affair ensues, and Kiyoshi re-opens an electrifying world of late nights and new experiences Mizuki thought was behind her forever. Beginning in Atlanta, Merritt Fowler is the second wife of a doctor, whose mother, who lives with them, has a more advanced stage of Alzheimers than her husband is willing to acknowledge. I thought it was poignant how the calmness and dullness of the life she leads at home is contrasted with the vibrancy and cacophony of colours, sights and sounds she is met with when she and Kiyoshi are together. She has two children that seem perfect, wearing the backpacks that are trendy with the schoolchildren nowadays, and a husband that, when they met, seemed so devoted to her. It’s really hard to tell you all how much I loved Fault Lines, because I want you to read it to see for yourselves.But the further she falls into their relationship, the clearer it becomes that she is living two lives – and in the end, we can choose only one. It's everything a woman could want, yet sometimes she wonders whether it would be more fun to throw herself off the high-rise balcony than spend another evening not talking to her husband or hanging up laundry. Her husband abides by the cultural expectations, working hard every day and barely seeing their two children, Aki and Eri. It’s everything a woman could want, yet sometimes she wonders whether it would be more fun to throw herself off the high-rise balcony than spend another evening not talking to her husband or hanging up laundry. Every day and in numerous ways we are bombarded with different information telling us how we should look after our children and families, all the things we should be doing and lots of things we shouldn’t.
