A dazzling novel spanning two continents—and six decades of secrets—Who is Mr. Satoshi? is a “quietly masterful” (The Independent) work of fiction from the author of High Dive and The Great Mistake.
When his mother dies, Rob “Foss” Fossick—a fortysomething photographer whose best days already seem to be behind him—discovers amongst her possessions a package addressed to a “Mr. Satoshi.” Tasked with locating this mysterious figure from his mother’s past—and with the urging of his agent, keen for him to return to work—Rob travels to Japan. There, with the help of a love hotel receptionist, he follows Mr. Satoshi’s trail from the bright lights of Tokyo to the northern city of Sapporo, where he must come to terms with his family’s ghosts—and his own.
