"Um, sir? Excuse me, is that 'The Detective's Legs' by Tamura Hiroshi?"
The boy standing in front of Tamura is pale and skinny, with wispy red-blonde hair. He wears the uniform of a nearby high school, with the top button of his shirt undone. His face is vaguely feminine, but not so much as to be made fun of by other boys; the sort of face teenage girls are drawn to. He is looking at the book in Tamura's hands with a barely disguised covetousness.
Ok, so I usually avoid adult/teen stories. Maybe because the real cross-generation relationships I know are pretty much destructive. However, bb_shousetsu hass no warning, so I had not known...
Then I was surprised by how good the story was... I loved the whole thing but my favourite part is probabbly the ending. And I also adored the fact that the story deals with a disfunctional heterosexual marriage and the wife is not described like a bitch. Instead, the feelings of the characters are captured well and are trully believable.Also, there is a bonus to it - it is illustrated!
