Japanese Masters

The leading edge of Japanese fiction can be found in short stories first published in the 1960s, an unfinished novel left incomplete by its author’s suicide in 1972, and a novella from the turn of the 20th Century. Three works of historical importance that are also breathtaking in their freshness: revelatory, subversive, and vigorously alive to the possibilities of both human experience and fiction’s ability to make us strange to ourselves.
