Alternative title:
Match Ichihon no Hanashi (Japanese)
マッチ一本の話 (Japanese)
Plot Summary: In this collection of hauntingly elliptical short stories, Oji Suzuki explores memory, relationships and loss with a loose narrative style, filling each tale with a sense of unfulfilled longing. He plumbs the dissolute depths of human psychology, literally bathing his characters in expansive shadows that paradoxically reveal as much as they obscure.
