Plug -- Translucent Tree

Don't want to say too much about this because I've interviewed the author of the thing in question elsewhere, but I wanted to make a public shout-out, since I probably won't get a chance to say much about the translation:

I voraciously read through a book translated from Japanese the other day that blew my socks off. And to be honest, normally I have a hard time reading translations when I've already read the original (which I had), if for no other reason than that I'm reading the same story twice; frequently worse for it. [Don't start with me, grad students.]

Anyway, frequent ill iterate commenter Deborah, is the translator of this very work! I thought that deserved mention.

The book.
