あん Author Durian SukegaE to escape and Tokue's dark secret is revealed with devastating conseuencesSweet Bean Paste is a moving novel about the burden of the past and the redemptive power of friendship Translated into English for the first time Durian Sukegawa's beautiful prose is capturing hearts all over the worl In case you haven't noticed I've been reading only Japanese and Korean short literature all this weekend and so far this has by far been my favourite I went in not knowing anything about the story but came away uietly weeping It was beautifully touching and heart warmingSentaro spends his days making doriyaki as the only employee of a confectionery shop He dislikes sweet treats however and has no passion for the craft or in life in general As a former convict he feels trapped at the shop with no future and no prospects He feels useless Until one day an old woman called Tokue walks in asking for a job What follows is an exploration into the prejudices of society and a blossoming gentle friendship between Sentaro and TokueSentaro is not a relatively likeable character at the start of this so I find it all the remarkable that a story that is a little over 160 pages could develop and execute a character arc that feels very genuine and realistic Through his friendship with Tokue we witness Sentaro learn that he does have a place in the world and can contribute to society Tokue in her forced exile demonstrates that even through forced adversity you can still be productive and a positive representation to society She's a very well fleshed out character and the fact that her story is grounded in reality Japanese leporasy sufferers were put into forced isolation in sanatoriums until 1996 made this all the awful to read aboutFantastic read that shines a light on societal prejudice that still occurs today with characters that are easy to fall in love with This is as sweet as the Anko Tokue makes
