This calm is important, because the sheer scope of the philosophical problems Hirano tackles could very easily have felt overwhelming. There are no easy answers or tidy bows here. Instead, Hirano embraces the reality that life is complicated, and that we don’t get to chose the hand we are dealt. History, racism, memory, love, lust, trauma, untimely death . . . These are all things that we face everyday, and Hirano confronts them head on, thinking his way through them, creating a refreshingly complex and highly realistic world.
