Recent press

  • “Moving and surprising... In Kawakami’s hands, bullying becomes a way to examine such concepts as power, status and the nature of evil.”
    — Tampa Bay Times, Jun 3 2021
  • ★ “Heaven further confirms Kawakami’s superb literary ability to expose and disturb... It will keep readers mesmerized to the final page.”
    — Shelf Awareness (Starred Review), Jun 2 2021
  • Heaven shows us how to think about morality as an ongoing, dramatic activity. It can be maddening and ruinous and isolating. But it can also be shared, enlivened through writing and conversation, and momentarily redeemed through unheroic acts of solidarity.”
    — The New Yorker, Jun 1 2021
  • Heaven is a raw, painful, and tender portrait of adolescent misery, reminiscent of both Elena Ferrante's fiction and Bo Burnham's 2018 film Eighth Grade. I cannot, in good conscience, endorse it without a warning: This book is very likely to make you cry.”
    — NPR, May 25 2021
  • “The dissonances of the novel align into perfect vision for the breathtaking ending, which is an argument in favor of meaning, of beauty, of life.”
    — The New York Times Book Review, May 25 2021
  • “The writing is beautifully wrought and the research a result of years of study. The novelist illustrates the senseless cruelty of the regime and portrays its characters convincingly, not as monsters but deluded, indulged and frightened victims of their own stupidity.”
    — The Jewish Chronicle, May 20 2021
  • The Tyranny of Algorithms lays bare the author’s aghast take on the excesses of maths-based politicking.”
    — Buzz Magazine (UK), May 19 2021
  • “The pace is deliberate, but the lean, muscular prose is matched by a deep dive into character and the seamy side of the city...A full-bodied immersion into Glasgow’s gritty past.”
    — Kirkus Reviews, May 19 2021
