“Asia Media International” has given “At the End of the Matinee” a great review!

’m happy to share another detailed and terrific review of “At the End of the Matinee” IN Asia Media International.

The literary and social merit of At the End of the Matinee emanates from how “internationalist” the book is at its core. Hirano moves away from the Sinocentrism featured in many classical Japanese novels. Instead, Hirano’s multiracial and multicultural characters exist in a world far greater than their respective home countries. Women characters such as Yoko are also depicted as complex, independent, and intrinsically talented.
