By The Book: The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida with Clarissa Goenawan

Clarissa Goenawan is an Indonesian-born Singaporean writer who wrote the award-winning 2015 novel “Rainbirds”. In her latest novel, “The Perfect World of Miwako Sumida”, she travels through Japan’s history to tell the story of a tragic mystery. We speak with Clarissa about writing histories and trauma, and how she delved into a different culture in her fiction. We wrap things up by taking a look at news from the literary world and how the industry is adapting to these uncertain times.
