From the Back Cover

'Mieko Kawakami is a genius' - Naoise Dolan, author of Exciting Times

From the bestselling author of Breasts and Eggs and international literary sensation Mieko Kawakami, comes a sharp and illuminating novel about a fourteen-year-old boy subjected to relentless bullying.

In Heaven, a fourteen-year old boy is tormented for having a lazy eye. Instead of resisting, he chooses to suffer in silence. The only person who understands what he is going through is a female classmate, Kojima, who experiences similar treatment at the hands of her bullies. Providing each other with immeasurable consolation at a time in their lives when they need it most, the two young friends grow closer than ever. But what, ultimately, is the nature of a friendship when your shared bond is terror?

Unflinching yet tender, sharply observed, intimate and multi-layered, this simple yet profound novel stands as yet another dazzling testament to Mieko Kawakami’s uncontainable talent. There can be little doubt that it has cemented her reputation as one of the most important young authors at work today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awestruck!
By Gigi on 2 September 2021
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now so I finally caved in and bought it. It arrived the next day after ordering, packaged securely and no markings or scuffs on the book at all, it’s in perfect condition.

The book itself has sensitive content so please be aware of what you’re buying before actually buying it. I think the book was really eye opening to me and it hits you with the reality, it’s brutal. Nonetheless, I think the book was good and it was a very interesting read!
