Yoko Tawada

Contemporary Japanese-German prose writer

Tawada’s chilling evocations of disorientation are the peers of Paul Bowles’ most chilling stories.

Booklist

When reading Yoko Tawada…one is struck less by the resemblance of her fiction to that of other authors than by its utter originality.

The Japan Times

Tawada’s slender accounts of alienation achieve a remarkable potency.

—Michael Porter, New York Times
