Territory Of Light

“Yuko Tsushima is one of the most important Japanese writers of her generation.” - Foumiko Kometani, The New York Times

"The fact that the novel, which has been elegantly translated into English by Geraldine Harcourt, seems to be in direct dialogue with contemporary novels of motherhood . . . suggests both its deep prescience and the enduring relevance of its insights. Tsushima writes in prose so bare and vivid that even banal details acquire a visceral vibrancy . . . [A] story that searchingly inhabits the lives of women without sentimentality or self-pity." ―Jiayang Fan, The New York Times Book Review

From one of the most significant contemporary Japanese writers, a haunting, dazzling audiobook of loss and rebirth. 

I was puzzled by how I had changed. But I could no longer go back....

It is spring. A young woman, left by her husband, starts a new life in a Tokyo apartment. Territory of Light follows her over the course of a year as she struggles to bring up her two-year-old daughter alone. Her new home is filled with light streaming through the windows, so bright she has to squint, but she finds herself plummeting deeper into darkness, becoming unstable, untethered. As the months come and go and the seasons turn, she must confront what she has lost and what she will become.  

At once tender and lacerating, luminous and unsettling, Yuko Tsushima’s Territory of Light is an audiobook of abandonment, desire, and transformation. It was originally published in 12 parts in the Japanese literary monthly Gunzo between 1978 and 1979, each chapter marking the months in real time. It won the inaugural Noma Literary Prize.
