    I wrote this novel on the road. I was exhausted from many red-eye flights, almost manic after too much coffee, too often heartbroken and lonely. I was crying, laughing hysterically, not being able to say a word or blabbering to myself this whole time when I was working on Made in Tokyo. It is special to me and I hope it can touch your soul as well.

    🔮Hidden Depths

    Made in Tokyo is full of beautiful and heartbreaking moments. The protagonist, Tanya, is the only constant in a nonchronological tale that chases her through airports, hotels and shifting relationships. A great study of love, human experience and how we relate to each other, it explores what happens when we do ‘what we’re not supposed to,’ and what’s at the end of a path of self-destruction. A must-read for anyone who has ever been lost.

    Wow. From start to finish, enthralling, deep. The writer has an uncanmy way of drawing you in at all times, with her deep personal experiences and making it feel like you were there on the ride too. Its a book that prompts constant reflection, of self and of how we all do this crazy thing called life.

    Can a human’s life be significant? Is there any meaning in life at all? Suppressing these thoughts by devouring new experiences, meeting new people: it’s like heroin to me. The more I do it, the bigger the hole inside me grows. Where does it all lead to? I am afraid to find out.

    I am part of it. I am slowly dissolving into this meaningless sensation of joy
