I've just read an Akutagawa Prize novel "Hibana" written by comedian Naoki Matayoshi. The prize has boosted the sales. The number of the copies has surpassed a million according to the publisher. 
The story was about two comedians. They were struggling to be their ideal performers. The episode starts and ends at a firework festival in a local town. He made the characters in detail.  The two of them had to live in clumsy way. 
I like his writing style. It was a good novel, so I want to read his story more. I bet he'll be a remarkable writer in the future.
