Rainbirds (2018)
Clarissa Goenawan
"Rainbirds is that rarest of debut novels--confident, transportive, and utterly enthralling. Clarissa Goenawan explores the mysteries of small-town Japan, drawing readers in with understated prose, then ensnaring with a subtle spell, exposing, grain by grain, the secrets behind a young woman's death."
