When Shouji Arai crosses one of his company's most powerful clients, he must leave Akakawa immediately or risk his life. But his girlfriend Youko is nowhere to be found.

Haunted by dreams of drowning and the words of a fortune teller who warned him away from three women with water in their names, he travels to Tokyo, where he tries in vain to track Youko down. But Shouji soon realises that not everything Youko told him about herself was true. Who is the real woman he once lived with and loved, and where could she be hiding?

Watersong is a spellbinding novel of loves lost and recovered, of secrets never spoken, and of how our pasts shape our futures.

Praise for The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida-
' A complex, interpersonal mystery ... A tremendous examination of sadness ... A book with heart about the mysteries of the heart.'
-Benjamin Welton, New York Journal of Books

Praise for The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida-
'An offbeat, tender exploration of the secrets we keep from others ... Goenawan is clearly a talented and creative storyteller ... She excels at suspense, keeping the reader guessing with left-field plot developments and forays into magic realism that somehow seem in keeping with realities on the ground.'
-The Irish Times

Praise for The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida-
'Vivid and intriguing - an elegantly cryptic, poetically plotted Murakami-esque whydunit.'
-Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti
