Silk by Alessandro Baricco

5 Aug

Series: No, stand-alone book.

Published: August 25th 1998 by Vintage

Details: Paperback, 112 pages

My rating: 4/5

Amazingly beautifully written book about a married silk trader who travels to Japan for business and falls in love with a girl. I loved the poetic language and how the story felt so complete, considering this little book is not even 120 pages long. A joy to read.
