Boni is writing a different history of Japan. A country that, despite Hiroshima (a great scene in which the author tastes sake with the victims of an atomic bomb), has convinced itself that nuclear energy is the safest in the world, and has now become a victim of its own pride. A nation that made the recipes for natural disasters into the heart of its own culture, and then, in the race for modernity, forgot what helped it survive on constantly trembling islands. But Ganbare!
(we can do it!) is not just a book about Japan. It is also a fascinating journey deep into the experience of death.–Books. Magazine for Reading
Katarzyna Boni is a master at using form. Thanks to this Ganbare!
