From it's modern origins in the nineteenth century to the contemporary this collection celebrates the fantastic scope of Japanese short story writing. Authors already well-known to English-language readers are all included here - Tanizaki, Akutagawa, Murakami, Mishima, Kawabata - but also many surprising new finds. From Yuko Tsushima's 'Flames' to Yuten Sawanishi's 'Filling Up with Sugar', from Shin'ichi Hoshi's 'Shoulder-Top Secretary' to Banana Yoshimoto's 'Bee Honey. Curated by Jay Rubin, who has himself freshly translated several of the stories, and introduced by Haruki Murakami.
