Help! My wish list #22

One more title from my ever-expanding reading wish list.

In Search of a Distant Voice
By Taichi Yamada

Amazon's product description: A woman is trying to contact Kasama Tsuneo at a crisis point in his life. But she won't reveal her identity. Kasama is an immigration officer in Tokyo, struggling to live a ‘normal’ life after an event that happened eight years previously, when he lived in the USA. His arranged marriage is looming, and he's seized by a strange emotional fit. And then the disembodied voice begins. All Tsuneo can do is desperately chase this woman, and the mystery behind what happened eight years earlier over the sea.

Why I want to read this book: I enjoy Japanese literature but haven't read anything by this author yet. This sounds like a good place to start!
