A LOST PARADISE by Junichi Watanabe
Released: Aug. 1, 2000

"A grownup love story and then some, powered by two brilliant characterizations and some unusually acute psychological analysis."
This very popular 1997 Japanese novel, a bestseller that also spawned a successful television series and feature film, is a relentlessly detailed chronicle of the folie d'amour that consumes a middle-aged publishing executive and a younger woman, both unhappily married to other spouses, each devoted to histories and images of others before them who gave all for love.
