OVER A MILLION COPIES SOLD IN JAPAN WINNER OF THE NAOKI PRIZE AND THE JAPAN BOOKSELLERS' AWARD The Night Circus meets Lonely Castle in the Mirror in this million-copy multi-awardwinning Japanese bestseller, available finally in an English translation by Philip Gabriel, a translator of Murakami 'A pitch-perfect, vivid masterpiece' Nick Bradley, author of The Cat and The City 'Propulsive and poetic' Kirkus Reviews ______________________ Welcome to a magical world of music, friendship and rivalry ... In a small coastal town just a stone's throw from Tokyo, a prestigious piano competition is underway. Over the course of two feverish weeks, three friends will experience some of the most joyous - and painful - moments of their lives. Though they don't know it yet, each will profoundly and unpredictably change the others, for ever. Aya was a piano genius, until she ran away from the stage and vanished; will the tall and talented Makun bring her back? Or will it be child of nature, Jin, a pianist without a piano, who carries the sound of his father's bees wherever he goes? Each of them will break the rules, awe their fans and push themselves to the brink. But at what cost? Tender, cruel, compelling, HONEYBEES AND DISTANT THUNDER is the unflinching story of love, courage and rivalry. Most of all, it shows how three young people reconcile with the highs and lows of what it means to truly be a friend.
