A major new anthology of great Japanese short stories introduced by Haruki Murakami This fantastically varied and exciting collection celebrates the great Japanese short story, from its modern origins in the nineteenth century to the remarkable examples being written today. Curated by Jay Rubin (who has himself freshly translated several of the stories) and introduced by Haruki Murakami, this is a book which will be a revelation to many of its readers. Short story writers already well-known to English-language readers are all included - 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´, The Penguin Book of Japanese Short Stories is filled with fear, charm, beauty and comedy.
