Intimacies (2021)
Katie Kitamura
"Katie Kitamura's beautifully wrought novel is tense and suspenseful, a mystery about human choices. From its protagonist's work as an interpreter at the Hague, from crimes against humanity, to friendship and a love affair, the interpreter can't escape questions of judgment and justice. She balances tenuously on an ethical scale, while interpretation itself is brilliantly employed as the faulty method that subsumes all communication. Like a work by Graham Greene, INTIMACIES kept me in its tight grip."
