lip lit: the perfect world of miwako sumida by larissa Goenawan

Kaylia Payne
No comments

In a word: Wow. Just…wow. What a beautiful, heartbreaking book. For what is at first glance a small and unassuming tale, it certainly packs a punch. That being said, it’s done in a really gentle way, with the writing used to carve out the story rather than build it. The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida…
