Open Book Club – Isabel Allende’s The Japanese Lover
Still riding high on having heard Ms. Allende speak at our November Open Book / Open Mind event, we will read another one of her popular novels for the next book club meeting, The Japanese Lover.
Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover explores questions of identity, abandonment, redemption, and the unknowable impact of fate on our lives. Written with the same attention to historical detail and keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits, The Japanese Lover is a profoundly moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.
The book is available to borrow through the Montclair Public Library system and for purchase at Watchung Booksellers in Watchung Plaza.
