Winner, Christina Stead Prize for Fiction, NSW Premier's Literary AwardsShortlisted, Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, Queensland Literary Awards and ACT Book of the Year AwardParis- 1989. Recently retired Inspector of Police Auguste Jovert receives a letter from a woman who claims to be his daughter. Two days later, a stranger from Japan comes knocking on his door...... 'A leading contender for the best book I have read this year.' Australian'Wonderful...... A novel of detection, a thriller of the intellect.' Sydney Morning Herald'A novel of exquisite beauty, which evades categorisation...... A plot summary conveys little of The Snow Kimono's subtlety, delicacy and sadness, or of the many moral and philosophical questions it poses.' The Times'Gripping...... Each chapter builds on the one before, unfolding through levels of story to unpack deeper and deeper truths.' Guardian'Stunning and hypnotic...... A deep reflection on life, memory, love and loss...... Astoundingly evocative...... You won't read another novel like The Snow Kimonothis year, or perhaps for many to come.' Asian Review of Books
