The Mysterious Beauty of the Universe

A novel in-progress by Todd Shimoda
The ultimate question of why is there a universe inspires wonder, creates schools of philosophy, drives science and art. Zack Hara, having survived a suicide attempt in an attempt to find an emotional life, works in Tokyo as a translator, where he struggles to control a chaos of emotions.

Zack's live-in lover Noriyo is distressed and his co-workers concerned, when a chemist, Aya Aoki, with a startling theory, hires him to translate her book from Japanese to English. Aoki combines her research into light and flower pigments, and the Japanese aesthetic of yugen, the profound and mysterious beauty of the universe.

Zack labors to understand and translate her ideas, as he also struggles to overcome his internal pandemonium. This sequel to OH! A Mystery of "Mono No Aware" will draw readers of the novel, as well as those coming to meet Zack for the first time.
