Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of short stories by non-Japanese who choose to live in Japan is an absorbing look at the Outsider in a nation that does not absorb foreigners easily. Unlike that other hotbed of expatriate writing, literary Paris between the wars--which after all was not so different from home--literary Japan has confronted its expatriate writing community with a challenging mental and physical landscape. The Broken Bridge features work by 36 non-Japanese writers, including Alan Brown, Leza Lowitz, Alex Kerr, James Kirkup, and Phyllis Birnbaum.

Synopsis:

Absorbing fiction from Outsiders in a land that does not absorb foreigners easily.

Synopsis:

The Broken Bridge includes stories from the period after the Occupation until the present day, and contains work by 36 non-Japanese writers, including Edward Seidensticker, Philip Whalen, Leza Lowitz, Morgan Gibson, PHyllis Birnbaum, James Kirkup and others.
