Sentaro has failed: he has a criminal record, drinks too much, and hasn’t managed to fulfil his dream of becoming a writer. Instead, he works in a tiny confectionery shop selling dorayaki, a type of pancake filled with sweet bean paste. With only the blossoming of the cherry trees to mark the passing of time, he spends his days listlessly filling the pastries. Until one day an elderly, handicapped woman enters the shop. Tokue makes the best bean paste imaginable, and begins to teach Sentaro her art. But as their friendship flourishes, societal prejudices become impossible to escape, in this quietly devastating novel about the burden of the past and the redemptive power of friendship.

Cesare Annunziata podría definirse sin demasiados miramientos como un viejo y cínico tocapelotas. Con setenta y siete años, viudo desde hace cinco, y padre de dos hijos, Cesare ha decidido pasar de todo y de todos. Los pocos balances que hace de su vida están marcados por una feroz ironía, quizá por miedo a no poder seguir haciéndolos. Su existencia podría seguir su rumbo hasta su previsible y universal final entre vasos de vino con Marino, el viejecito neurótico de la segunda planta; las charlas no deseadas con Eleonora, la loca de los gatos del vecindario; y fogonazos de pasión carnal con Rossana, la enfermera madura que redondea sus ingresos con atenciones de pago a los viudos del barrio. Pero un día llega a su edificio la joven y enigmática Emma, casada con un individuo siniestro con el que no parece tener nada en común. Cesare no tarda en darse cuenta de que en esa pareja hay algo que no funciona, y sin duda no se implicaría si no fuera por la silenciosa llamada de socorro que lanzan los tristes ojos de Emma... Los secretos que Cesare descubre sobre su vecina, pero sobre todo sobre sí mismo, conformarán la trama de esta novela formidable, capaz de dibujar un personaje en el que conviven, en alegre contradicción, el cinismo más feroz y la más profunda humanidad.
