Hey /lit, I need your help. My literature professor challenged me earlier today.he recently hung a Chinese or Japanese style umbrella from his ceiling with what appear to be origami coy fish (or possibly trout) above the umbrella, as if raining down onto the umbrella. He bet me 5 to 1 odds that I couldn't guess the book it's in, or some relation or derivation of the imagery depicted. What book is this imagery from? My best guess is some kind of Asian literature, but I could be wrong. My professor is Asian by the way.

Thank you all who have helped, I don't know whether these will be the ones, but I do believe I get 5 tries. Are there any more/ why do these current ones fit the bill? Sorry, I'm just trying to be informed as possible.

>>7587902
I dont understand where your problem with that statement is tbfwy
>>
>>7588039
Right thats why everyone else dresses like us, watches our movies, listens to our music, and tries to sneak into our country.
>>
>>7588356
At the moment everyone is trying to sneak into Europe. Your Amerifat "immigrant crisis" is a fucking joke. Europe is the fashion center of the world, too, and the only place to look if you want music other than lowest common denominator pop trash.

American movies are great though.
>>
>>7588033

America hasn't been number 1 in awhile. It's just that it has the strongest army, though way too overbudget.

sounds like my diary desu

You will get no satisfaction if you give the correct answer
Go about your wagers and your life honestly OP
>>
*UPDATE*

None of those were correct. I now owe my professor money, but I can try again. I'm going to, of course. Anyone else know? He did say that he could see why gravity's rainbow could be it, but it isn't. I have seen him reading murakami before, so it may be one of his works.

Kafka on the shore. I believe that was the one where it rained fish.

>You pay the price for slavery every day.

yeah the blacks rot out the core of our innercities in some kind of horrible slave resentiment, but eventually mexicans will out number them and our innercities will be filled with affordable taco joints and cheap cleaning services

Oh here, he's of Chinese heritage, but a few generations in so he may appreciate east Asian culture as a whole rather than exclusively Chinese.

Kafka on the Shore by Murakami has got to be it. There is a big scene where mackerel rain out of the sky.
