The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto

Chihiro, a 20-something lady, moves to Tokyo after her mother's death, spends time looking out of her apartment window, and meets a young man, Nakajima, who also spends time looking out of his window. Their friendship and relationship that follows is a story of two broken people who are on the way to healing in their own quirky, human way.

Subtle, understated, short, weird, and lovely all at the same time.
