Asleep - Banana Yoshimoto, Michael Emmerich This is a collection of three short stories: Night and Night's Travelers, Love Songs and Asleep. These stories are unrelated but deal with rather odd relationships. My favorite of the three is Night and Night's Travelers. Our timeline constantly shifts from present to the past and from character to character. Eventually, you piece together what happened. It's a rather sad story. The other two were okay. I really wasn't crazy about it and didn't necessarily feel anything for the characters or come away with anything either. It was more of an abnormal slice of life narrative.
