Meet Sentaro, a bit of a loser who has a humdrum existence making and selling sweet bean dorayaki for his snack-shack. They're not the best - he cuts corners. Then along comes Tokue, a spectacularly ugly old woman who begs him for a job, and finally he gives in. She introduces him to her highly superior sweet bean paste, and business looks up. He learns that she had been incarcerated in a leper colony for much of her life- hence her deformities - though she is no longer infectious.

This sweet novella set in contemporary Japan is about a man who is released from prison and runs a Doraharu, which serves dorayaki (pancakes with sweet bean paste). He meets an old women, Tokue, who grew up in a leper colony on the outskirts of town. His unlikely friendship with her and Wakana, a school girl who visits the shop, is quiet and lovely. Despite their differences, the three learn to look past their outward appearances to find something deeper.

حين تنظر الى الحياة من وجهة نظر كائن آخر غيرك..
رواية مقبضة ومأسوية لن يحبها الجميع
ستكره البشر الذين يريدون أن يبيدوا الغربان لأنك اقتربت ونظرت من ناحية الغراب جونسون ورأيت أدق تفاصيل حياته ومأساته
ستشعر بالأسى على ريتسوكو ولو أن دورها هي ويويتشي كان قليلا في الرواية فالأساس كان الغراب المنبوذ… (més)
