"Yuko Tsushima is one of the most important Japanese writers of her generation." --Foumiko Kometani, The New York Times

As the months come and go and the seasons turn, she must confront what she has lost and what she will become.

At once tender and lacerating, luminous and unsettling, Yuko Tsushima's Territory of Light is a novel of abandonment, desire, and transformation.
