Neue Musik aus Japan
by Thorsten Krämer
„Neue Musik aus Japan“ by Thorsten Krämer was published at September 1st 1999 by Kiepenheuer & Witsch. The setting for the book are places all over Germany in nowadays time.
The book is structured in small stories, which are titled with Japanese song titles. Even though the book title says „New music from Japan“, this does not have to mean, the whole book is about Japan. Each story contains different people, from different Asian countries, such as India, China, Japan, etc. as well as German people. After reading the first half of the book, you will begin to realize that at a certain point, the stories will be very familiar to you. That is because the stories from the beginning are continued or written in a different point of view in the second half of the book, which at first confused me, because I thought, I had read the stories already once, but then I was amazed by how well the author managed to make the reader think about the stories just once again.
The beginning of the book is a small introduction about the situation in the first story. People coming together accidentially and finding together through music.
Again and again, while reading the book, you will find people from all over the world finding together.
Even though there is a limited narrator in each story, you can now and then find parts, where the author himself writes about his own thoughts, which is confusing once again, but after all an interesting burst in the usual happenings.
As most of the stories begin without preamble, they end just as quickly and surprising.
The stories are about daily happenings, people in daily situations, even though there is no real drama, tension, crime or anything likely, it still keeps you turning the pages.
The book is definitely worth reading
and it does not have any parts that are not interesting, because the
brevity of the stories offers the reader a lot of variation.
