Summary

Con ecos de Mishima, Murakami y Kawakami, esta exquisita novela de amor y suspense retrata todas las emociones humanas.

POR LA GANADORA DEL PREMIO NAOKI Y DEL PREMIO YOSHIKAWA EIJI DE LITERATURA, ENTRE OTROS.

Desde la muerte de su madre, Momoko no se relaciona más que con su gata Lala. Pero cuando Masayo llega a su casa para ser su preceptora todo cambia, y nace entre ellas una tierna complicidad. Masayo poco a poco se enamora del padre de la niña, mientras que este solo parece tener ojos para su nueva amiga: la bella Chinatsu. La vida sigue su curso en un ambiente de mentiras y aparente calma hasta que, cuando la nieve cubre de silencio el jardín y los campos de trigo, afloran las pulsiones más oscuras y las verdades salen a la luz.

La gata Lala, la esfinge blanca, será la clave de esta sorprendente novela que funde, para fascinación del lector, la intriga con los sentimientos. Ganadora de los premios Naoki, Shibata Renzaburo e Yoshikawa Eiji de Literatura, Mariko Koike es uno de los grandes nombres de la literatura japonesa actual, junto con Haruki Murakami, Hiromi Kawakami y Yoko Ogawa.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

With hints of Mishima, Murakami, and Kawakami, this exquisite love and suspense novel portrays all human emotions.
 
BY THE WINNER OF THE NAOKI AWARD AND THE YOSHIKAWA EIJI LITERATURE AWARD, AMONG OTHERS.
 
Ever since her mother's death, Momoko only wants to have contact with her cat Lala. But when her new tutor Masayo arrives, everything changes, and a tender sense of complicity arises between them. Masayo gradually falls in love with the girl's father, while he only seems to have eyes for his new friend: the beautiful Chinatsu. Life continues its course filled with lies and an apparent calm, until the day the snow begins to cast a silence over the garden and the wheat fields, it is when the darkest impulses explode and all truths come to light.
 
Lala the Cat, the white sphinx, will be the key to this surprising novel which, to the reader's fascination, blends intrigue with feelings. Winner of the Naoki, Shibata Renzaburo, and Yoshikawa Eiji Literature awards, Mariko Koike is one of the biggest names in current Japanese literature, along with Haruki Murakami, Hiromi Kawakami, and Yoko Ogawa.
