Help! My wish list #25

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

Strangers
By Taichi Yamada

Amazon's product description: Middle-aged, jaded and divorced, TV scriptwriter Harada returns one night to the dilapidated downtown district of Tokyo where he grew up. There, at the theatre, he meets a likable man who looks exactly like his long-dead father. And so begins Harada’s ordeal, as he’s thrust into a reality where his parents appear to be alive at the exact age they had been when they had died so many years before.

Why I want to read this book: It sounds mysterious and it's set in Tokyo, a city that constantly fascinates me. This books ticks two big boxes!
