Snow Country, perhaps the most of Yasunari Kawabata's classic Japanese novels, is a dazzling portrait of a country geisha, Komako, in a Japanese hot springs resort, as seen through the eyes of a wealthy dilettante, Shimamira. The two main characters, as well as Yoko, the pretty maid who comes between them, are searching for love, but their circumstances and their unrealistic hopes ensure they cannot find it and that only tragedy and deep despair for all three of them can ensure.

From the winner of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Literature, a powerful story of exile, migration, and betrayal.
When glamorous Uncle Amir, now a senior diplomat, offers Salim an escape, the lonely teenager travels to London for college. But nothing has prepared him for the biting cold and seething crowds of this hostile city. Struggling to find a foothold, and to understand the darkness at the heart of his family, he must face devastating truths about those closest to him--and about love, sex, and power. Evoking the immigrant experience with unsentimental precision and profound understanding, Gravel Heart is a powerfully affecting story of isolation, identity, belonging, and betrayal, and Abdulrazak Gurnah's most astonishing achievement.
