At the End of the Matinee


"Is the person you married the one you loved the most?" "I just wanted to be with the one I love." "Why did we have to go our separate ways?" This romance novel is for adults who have forgotten how to love. Makino is a skilled guitarist and Yoko works at a communications company. Though they love each other deeply, they were never meant to be together. Will the day they meet again ever come? Makino and Yoko felt a strong connection when they first met. Problem is, Yoko was already engaged. Makino falls into a musical slump, while Yoko suffers from a disease that she hides from others. Eventually, the disconsonance makes Yoko and Makino start to grow apart...such is this sublime romance written by Akutagawa Prize recipient, Keiichiro Hirano.
