Kono Taeko

Kono Taeko

Reminiscent of Flannery O’Connor’s works, Kono Taeko’s disquieting stories explore the dark side of human nature with an original voice and a strange, powerful beauty.

Translation Review

At once the most carnally direct and the most lucidly intelligent woman writing in Japan.
