Snow cover

A zen fable of love and haiku.

‘Yuko Akita had two passions.
And snow.’

On coming of age, Yuko is expected to become either a monk or a warrior. He decides instead to become a poet. And to write poems about snow. But to become a master poet he must also master the arts of painting, and of music, and of calligraphy. And lastly, the art of love.

‘A beautiful debut, a tale of mysterious clarity, like the poetry which inspired it.’

- Le Figaro Litteraire.

Originally published in France: Snow has sold over 40000 copies and has already been translated into Italian, German and Spanish.
