China, Japan, Indonesia, India, Korea—seven books from the world’s largest continent plus one that crosses through Paris to America. The dead speak as many languages as the living in these eight bold, transfiguring reads that run from the ghostly comedic to the Deneuvian cinematic, and on through old Beijing into a solitary temple room and an encounter with the Washer Lizards.
