Description

Ari Messer's staff pick, July 2009

The thirteen stories in this collection focus on ordinary characters from daily life-the working husband and the loyal wife who sadly and silently endures. Inevitably, they unravel to reveal human obsessions, flaws, and fears. And like the very best Japanese fiction, they are filled with sharp details and subtle, revealing changes of hue and texture.

Known for her many teleplays and winner of the Naoki Prize for Fiction, Kuniko Mukoda was emerging as one of Japan's most popular writers when she died in a plane crash in 1981. Translator Tomone Matsumoto is co-editor of the Showa Anthology of Japanese short stories.
