Riassunto: Here is the diary of a court lady of Japan from the golden age of Nara, more than a thousand years ago. The Naran age, characterized by hierarchy, rigid adherence to tradition and the performance of ritual, was a sophisticated urban society as different from ours as can be imagined. But what is The Pillow Book of Lady Kasa? Is it a legitimate historical document or a flight of invention by a melancholy archaeologist, fatally infected by his own sad past? Either way, The Pillow Book of Lady Kasa strays painfully, touchingly close to the source of its own artifice.
In his first novel, Barrie Sherwood weaves a lyrical mystery of two times, making a history that is transformed by fiction but which is no less real for the invention.
L'autore: The son of United Church missionaries, Barrie Sherwood was born in Hong Kong on November 10th, 1971. When he was eight his family moved to the BC interior. He later read English at Simon Fraser and spent a year studying playwriting at UBC. He now lives in Vancouver with his wife and daughter. His work has been published in Matrix, Headlight, and Vanilla Crow.
