The Bear and the Paving Stone by Toshiyuki Horie
ePUB | Fiction | 176 KB
A Japanese man, far from home, travels the countryside of Normandy with a friend – talking about war, literature, and everything in between. As his ideas of his life become more entangled with his personal writing, the pangs of his past and his half-forgotten memories overlap and threaten his peace.
Owing a debt to French writers from La Fontaine to Proust, the three fable-like tales in The Bear and the Paving Stone are stories of loss, memory and a longing to belong.
