TL;DW: Rather than being a straight-forward, traditional novel, Woman in the Dunes is the author forcing you to ask yourself a question. Which is more true? Who a person is when they have choice, have freedom, even if they’re miserable with it? Or who they are when you strip them of everything, and boil them down to impulses and instinct? Is it better to be at peace at rock bottom, or to be no one’s captive? Kobo Abe’s not going to tell you. And neither can I.
