Nancy pearl book lust to go
I Want to Eat Your Pancreas by Yoru SuminoBooks like this one is the reason why I love Japanese literature. The author has mastered the art of foreshadowing and suspense - each of the ~300 page turns threatened to rip my heart out due to the unbearable buildup of anticipation of the impending heartbreak that is foretold in the very first chapter.
The conversations between the main characters, which comprise the majority of the book, were so soulfully composed, contributing to the wonderful character building that instilled complex views of life and human absurdities in the main characters, which was tearfully struck down in the end when everything inevitably falls apart. The author paints such a delightfully cruel depiction of the unpredictability and unreliability of human life and that is what made this book great.
I have nothing but good things to say about this book. 10 out of 10. Definitely worth multiple re-readings. Just wow.

Let me lay my cards on the table, clear the air, call a spade a spade, and make something perfectly clear. I am barely a traveler at all. Vincent Millay that I read when I was about 13 and deeply into poetry. I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the stern fact, the sad self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. But to blame that sort of literary disillusionment for my lack of travel would be romantic in the extreme, and also highly disingenuous.

Listen Listening Tulsa, Oklahoma — On this installment of our program, we chat with our longtime book reviewer, Nancy Pearl a former Tulsan and former librarian, now based in the Seattle area. This time, however, we're asking Nancy about her own book, not about the merits or shortcomings of other titles. As Nancy tells us, of all the "recommended reading" books she's written thus far in her career, this one was probably the most fun and the most difficult. And as has been noted of this work in the pages of Publishers Weekly: "Nancy Pearl's little gem will please many a traveler or dreamer who loves to read about faraway places but doesn't know where to start. With fanciful alliteration, Pearl lists titles under topics arranged from 'A is for Adventure' to 'Zipping through Zimbabwe. Pearl classifies her recommendations well enough so that readers can take or leave her advice.
