Half of Each Other takes place in Tokyo. It tells the story of Nick and Setsuko York, a once very fond married couple devoted to their adorable five-year-old daughter, Emi.
Half of Each Other is the story of a woman and a man challenged by the shock of an overwhelming grief. Both are overcome by an immense sorrow … both are tempted by the passions of an extra-marital affair.
We are all half of each other.
How these two people, who were once madly in love with each other, overcome their grief and come to terms with the death of their daughter, provides the narrative of this intensely moving, heart-rending and uplifting Irish-Japanese love story.
Praise for The Unmaking of an American: “Roger has fearlessly thrown himself into the whirlpool of cross-culturalism. His life reads like an adventure story.”—Ryuichi Sakamoto
Praise for The Dream of Lafcadio Hearn: “Roger Pulvers has spun a highly readable and enjoyable portrayal of an unconventional man who embraced Japan in a time of transition, and who struggled intellectually and emotionally to come to grips with sweeping change.”—The Japan Times
Praise for Liv: “A gripping mystery, of a present haunted by the past, but also a profoundly moral book, asking of the reader: what would you do? In this, Liv deserves comparison with novels as great as An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro and The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.” —David Peace, author of Tokyo Year Zero
