A novel by

 
 
The daughter of a Belgian diplomat, Amelie had an itinerant childhood, ranging from Tokyo to Peking and Paris to New York by way of Bangladesh. Recounting these formative journeys right up to her return to Japan in 1989, and the Kobe earthquake, "The Life of Hunger" is an extraordinary examination of the self, and perhaps Amelie's most mature and moving work to date.
