Synopsis

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2019



AN INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER



When Gilbert wakes one day from a dream that his wife has cheated on him, he flees - immediately and inexplicably - for Tokyo, where he meets a fellow lost soul: Yosa, a young Japanese student clutching a copy of The Complete Manual of Suicide. Together, Gilbert and Yosa set off on a pilgrimage to see the pine islands of Matsushima, one looking for the perfect end to his life, the other for a fresh start.



Playful and profound, The Pine Islands is a beautiful tale of friendship, transformation and acceptance in modern Japan.
