Quatrième de couverture :

'What a beautiful book. So measured and confident for a debut. An enchanting and deftly layered exploration of desire, self-identity and belonging.'
EMMA JANE UNSWORTH, author of Animals

'Sublime - calm, profound, beautifully controlled and with startling splashes of colour. '
CHRIS CLEAVE, author of The Other Hand

HARMLESS LIKE YOU is an ode to the outsider. Moving from Manhattan to Berlin, from the Vietnam War to the new millennium, Buchanan's debut explores the thin line between attachment and abandonment, love and pain, selfishness and sacrifice. An unforgettable debut, as rich in darkness and light as it is in colour.
CHLOE BENJAMIN, author of The Anatomy of Dreams


When the meaning of 'home' is complicated, we strive for a sense of connection.
Yet sometimes being alone feels like the easiest choice to make.

In 1968 Yuki is 16 and has not one friend in all of New York.
It's the year her parents move back to Tokyo, but Yuki decides to stay.
As she sketches out her new life, it is also the year she'll fall in love with a shade of orange, climb out a window, meets an aspiring model, and run tangle-haired through the night.

In 2016 gallery owner Jay becomes a father, believing he is a happily married man.
It's the year he will finally confront his mother, who abandoned their family when he was two years old.
Her name is Yuki Oyama and she has been living for decades as an artist in Berlin.

Written with startling beauty and power, HARMLESS LIKE YOU explores the complexities of identity and art and captures, over decades and cities, a fractured family narrative of love, loneliness and reconciliation.

Revue de presse :

Impressive . . . Rowan Hisayo Buchanan [is] a 27-year-old with a very big literary career in front of her . . . Slick and intelligent... it's the subtle brilliance of Buchanan's back-to-front tale that really left me reeling. (Stylist)

Elegant, accomplished debut... Although this is a dark novel, it is also as rich and vivid as the chapter headings' descriptions of paint colours (Express)

Lyrical and endearing (New York Times Book Review)

This beautiful novel explores creativity and the complicated relationships between parents and children. (Psychologies)

This elegant and moving novel burns slowly, building in intensity as it develops to explore the subjects of identity, alienation and desire. (Fanny Blake, Daily Mail)

Harmless Like You is a refreshing, bold book about understatement. (Sunday Telegraph)

It's pretty rare that a book takes my breath away. But I guarantee Rowan Hisayo Buchanan's beautiful debut, Harmless Like You, will do just that . . will leave your heart hurting. (Sam Baker, The Pool)

Combines a wry, sardonic voice with an assured knack for comic set-pieces. (TLS)

Stylishly written . . . exceptional (Literary Review)

Buchanan's prose is visceral, startling and mind-bendingly gorgeous. . . .worth reading for the beauty and originality of the prose, for the questions Buchanan raises about art and heritage, and for the characters who are sometimes as maddening as they can be magnificent. (Boston Globe)
