Entre ambos se establece un pacto tácito para compartir l. a. soledad. Escogen los angeles misma comida, buscan los angeles compañía del otro y les cuesta separarse, aunque a veces intenten escapar el uno del otro: el maestro, en el recuerdo de los angeles mujer que un día lo abandonó; Tsukiko, en un antiguo compañero de clase. Con una prosa sensual y despojada, Kawakami nos cuenta una historia de amor muy especial: el acercamiento sutil de dos amantes, con toda su íntima belleza, ternura y profundidad. Todo un descubrimiento literario.
