A woman on a tilt a whirl,

where going round is also
going up and down.

I was very curious about this book. I've had it for quite some time and finally got around to reading it.

I found it very cohesive and structured. It did a good job of tying three generations of Japanese women together to show where they were like each other and where they've changed and the influences that brought those changes about. It also helps you understand Japanese society as a whole a little better.

The unfortunate thing is that this stops around 1990 when the book was published. So obviously there's another newer generation that isn't accounted for, but I still found it an interesting read. I hope despite it's 80's style cover, it will find new readers. It deserves them. :)

When he looked up again Tas had gone. Rising to join the others, he caught sight of something small and abandoned on the floor. "Tas you forgot your pipe." He picked it up and then saw words carved into the wood he had not seen before. Find the music, find the magic.
"Did you carve this?"
Tas did not turn. "Yes," he said, reluctantly. "I have to leave it."
"But, Tas, why?"
Tas squared his shoulders as though firming some resolve. But still he did not turn. "Because the shepherd said that it could only be used once. Thats why I can't get the pipe to play that song-or any song. I've used the magic." He took a deep breath and went on. "And he said that once I found the magic I had the pass the pipe on." he paused and then he did turn, a scamp's humor in his long brown eyes. "It's going to be a long winter. I'm going to leave it here for someone else to find."
