The Crane Wife

A Japanese folktale set in today’s London, in which a nebbishy American divorcé expat and his volatile daughter are touched by the magic. An allegorical origin story runs parallel, creating an intriguing read. “A story is not an explanation, it is a net through which the truth flows. The net catches some of the truth, but not all, never all, only enough so that we can live with the extraordinary without it killing us.” p.141
