A NovelPaperback - 2002
Part romance, part detective story, Sputnik Sweetheart tells the story of a tangled triangle of uniquely unrequited love.
K is madly in love with his best friend, Sumire, but her devotion to a writerly life precludes her from any personal commitments. At least, that is, until she meets an older woman to whom she finds herself irresistibly drawn. When Sumire disappears from an island off the coast of Greece, K is solicited to join the search party--and finds himself drawn back into her world and beset by ominous visions. Subtle and haunting, Sputnik Sweetheart is a profound meditation on human longing.

"And the half that was left is the person you see here. I've felt this way for the longest time- that in a Ferris wheel in a small Swiss town, for a reason I can't explain, I was split in two forever. for all I know, this may have been some kind of transaction. Its' not like something was stolen away from me, because it all still exits, on the other side. Just a single mirror separates us from the other side. But I can never cross the boundary of that single pane of glass. Never."
