Riassunto: The Japanese believe that until the age of three, children are gods, each one a 'Lord Child'. On their third birthday they fall from grace and join the rest of humanity. Narrated by a child - from the age of two and a half up until her third birthday - this novel reveals that the move from deity to ordinary member of the human race can be a very difficult thing indeed from which to recover.

Dal retro di copertina: Praise for The Character of Rain

?Nothomb potently distills from the state of infancy the intensity of beginnings, the precariousness, the trailed clouds of glory...that grow indistinct as childhood approaches.?--Richard Eder, The New York Times

?Witty and original. Perhaps the best yet from one of Europe?s finest young writers.?-- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Fear and Trembling

?Elegantly written, Nothomb demonstrates a shrewd understanding of the intricate ways Japanese relationships are made and spoiled.?-- The New York Times Book Review

?Nothomb updates the age-old divide between East and West in this delectable little book.?-- O Magazine

?Amélie Nothomb adds humor, the ingredient most often missing in other writers from France of her generation, the ingredient most difficult to translate.-- The Los Angeles Times
