The Diving Pool

I, finally, finished The Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa.   I say finally because I've had the book from the library for 2 months but just haven't taken time to read the little thing. It's a collection of 3 novellas, "The Diving Pool", "Pregnancy Diary" and "Dormitory".  Best word I can come up with to describe it is Haunted.  The narrators, all female, are all haunted by something.  The prose is lovely and dreamy.  I shouldn't have waited so long to read it.  A 6 and i'm looking for more work by this author!
