    A spare meditation on single motherhood, Territory of Light chronicles a year in the life of a woman living in Tokyo as she copes with her recent separation from her husband The novella begins with the newly single woman and her young daughter moving into a top floor apartment filled with light and the hope of a bright future, but things quickly dim The unnamed woman s daughter grows angry, her husband begins to stalk her, her job becomes too demanding Told from the perspective of the pro [...]

    I enjoyed Territory of Light and found it sufficiently absorbing, but now I m finding that I don t have a whole lot to say about it It s a simple story about motherhood told from the perspective of a newly single woman coming to terms with the failure of her marriage it s a quiet, meditative work that was originally published in Japanese in 1979, and while I felt that this story s cultural context was readily apparent as I was reading, it does have an introspective universality in its depicti I [...]

    This is a quick translated work from Japan, about a woman who has separated from her husband and is trying to raise her child A lot of focus is on the buildings where they live the rooms, the light, the water, the sounds, the neighbors, the space, the tatami.

    A slim novel taking place over the course of a year and narrated by a recently separated mother who is struggling to adjust to solo parenting her adorably naughty three year old daughter The writing in this caught my attention immediately, it is beautiful especially her descriptions of light There is something very similar here to the way Robin Robertson writes about the play of light only in this book it is often full of colour The images of the bright red kitchen floor, the silver painted r A [...]

    I was fascinated by this quietly told, subtle tale about control and the demand to function When a young woman is left by her husband, she becomes the only provider for her 2 year old daughter and has to juggle numerous, often contradictory expectations She has to hold down her job at a library where she is expected to perform her tasks no matter what happens in her private life, she has to find her own way of being a single mother while defending herself against the ideas others the employe I w [...]

  7. Inderjit Sangherasays:

    Territory of Light primarily takes place in a small Tokyo apartment where the narrator s dark descent into mental instability contrasts with the constant flood of light which variably dazzle and disorientate the narrator and her young daughter Darkness and lightness eventually combined and coalesce as the narrator, at the height of an epiphany, seeks to dissolve into light, drowning her grief and solitude into the perpetual stream of sunlight No one must ever know about this place that made Terr [...]
