The Woman In The Purple Skirt
by Natsuko Imamura
Translated by Lucy North
The Woman in the Purple Skirt seems to live in a world of her own. She glides through crowded streets without acknowledging any reaction her presence elicits. Each afternoon she sits on the same park bench, eating a pastry and ignoring the local children who make a game of trying to get her attention.
The Woman in the Purple Skirt is being watched. Someone is following her, always perched just out of sight, monitoring which buses she takes; what she eats; whom she speaks to. But this invisible observer isn’t a stalker – it’s much more complicated than that.
Clever, bewildering and darkly comic, The Woman in the Purple Skirt is the story of two women whose lives are set to become terribly entwined.
