The long-awaited conclusion to the tender, bittersweet saga that began with The Match Seller. Four men’s lives are upended by a single love letter: the charismatic publisher Hanashiro, the kind (if dense) student Hirose, Hanashiro’s gruff colleague Sawa, and Arihara, who sent the letter that started it all. As they unravel the thread of destiny that ties them together, they take their first, tentative steps towards their future happiness. Also included are “Tokyo March,” the story of how Hanashiro and Sawa met, and a previously unpublished coda set a few years after Lost Letters.
