Furikake #Furikake
Stephen Black
Amazon, 5 stars: Furikake is a book inspired by a mixture of spices, a dry Japanese condiment meant to be sprinkled on top of rice. Nine tales set in the Far East, mainly Singapore, linked by a different declination of furikake, like a recipe book full of savoury ingredients. ...a truly enjoyable read, between a memoir and a travel diary in which one can easily recognize fragments of oneself. The tales compose a very intense narrative, sometimes humorous..., others nostalgic... or euphoric... In any case, a human comedy that won't leave you indifferent.
