Over the course of his life, Mr Nishino falls hopelessly in love again and again. One woman is a colleague, another a chance encounter; one is the girlfriend of a classmate, another the best friend of Nishino's latest conquest. Some are entranced by Nishino, others care more for their freedom, their children (or their cats).

As we come to learn of the torments, desires and delights of each woman, a portrait emerges of a complicated man whose great capacity for love may well be the cause of his downfall.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Charming... beguiling and beautiful - Times

Quirky and delicate...timeless...I fell totally under the spell of this beautiful book - Daily Mail

Arresting... a wonderful sleight-of-hand narrative that reveals so much while seemingly being very simple - Big Issue

A story of desire, envy, romantic mishap, star-crossed lovers, passion, courtship, infidelity, unrequited love and loneliness - Herald

Endlessly thought-provoking, The Ten Loves of Mr Nishino is all the more remarkable for couching its insights in such accessible terms - Asian Review of Books

[A] short, sharp novel... The author's minimal and restrained style perfectly suits her subtle way of questioning human perception... Beautiful - Monocle
