The Nothing is Cancelled Booktour: Clarissa Goenawan and THE PERFECT WORLD OF MIWAKO SUMIDA

 First up on the Nothing is Cancelled Booktour, my posts for authors who have had events cancelled! We all want to support authors and indie bookstores, so keep spreading the word about these books and other books you love and indie bookstores and libraries you love all over social media!

THE PERFECT WORLD OF MIWAKO SUMIDA by Clarissa Goenawan came out March 10 and you can order wherever books are sold!

A Literary Hub Most Anticipated Book of 2020

From the critically acclaimed author of Rainbirds comes a novel of tragedy and dark histories set in Japan. 

University sophomore Miwako Sumida has hanged herself, leaving those closest to her reeling. In the months before her suicide, she was hiding away in a remote mountainside village, but what, or whom, was she running from?

Ryusei, a fellow student at Waseda who harbored unrequited feelings for Miwako, begs her best friend Chie to bring him to the remote village where she spent her final days. While they are away, his older sister, Fumi, who took Miwako on as an apprentice in her art studio, receives an unexpected guest at her apartment in Tokyo, distracting her from her fear that Miwako’s death may ruin what is left of her brother’s life. 

Expanding on the beautifully crafted world of Rainbirds, Clarissa Goenawan gradually pierces through a young woman’s careful façade, unmasking her most painful secrets.
