American Fuji, a Novel by Sara Backer
Penguin Putnam Inc.

Gaby Stanton, an American professor living in Japan, has lost her job teaching English at Shizuyama University. (No one will tell her exactly why.) Alex Thorn, an American psychologist, is mourning his son, a Shizuyama exchange student killed in an accident. (No one will tell him exactly how.) Alex has come to this utterly foreign place to find the truth, and now Gaby--newly employed at a Japanese "fantasy funeral" company--is his guide. Gaby, at least, can speak the language, though as she explains to Alex, the key to mastering Japanese is understanding what's NOT being said. And in this dazzling, unusual novel, the unspoken truths about everything from work and love to illness and death cast a deafening silence--and tower in the background like Mount Fuji itself.
