Anyone reading しんせかい?

Hi! I’m about a third of the way through the novel しんせかい by 山下澄人, and wondering if anyone else here is reading it (or wants to, or recently has, etc). It’s really good so far (won Akutagawa in 2017) and would be fun to talk about, and also to use a resource for talking about Japanese. Let me know if this sounds relevant to you!


I haven’t heard of this book yet, but once you finished it, please feel free to tick it off in The Akutagawa Prize Reading Challenge (and maybe leave a comment / little review for those who come after you?) :blush:
