Sorry I missed the hops last week. I was super busy as my office job tried to transition us to working-from-home mode and I didn't manage to get the post up.
Do you have more photos of books you saw in a bookstore or elsewhere or family photos on your phone?
In short, neither. I really don't keep photos on my phone. Any I take, I use for social media posts and then delete, or if they are 'keepers', I transfer them to my computer/portable harddrive for storage. At present, the only image on my phone is a graphic ready for a book review I need to hold back until June.
For many years I claimed I could remember things seen at the time of my own birth.
From page 56:
It got so that whenever I took a bath I would stand before the mirror for a long time, staring at the mirror's ungracious reflection of my naked body.
A Japanese teenager is overcome with longing for his male classmate. He imagines his body punctured with arrows, like the body of St Sebastian in the painting that obsesses him. Over and over again, each night in his private fantasies, the objects of his lust are tortured, killed and maimed. But, in the rigid world of imperial wartime Japan there is no place for such transgressive desires. He must wear a false mask and hide his true nature, whatever the cost.
