Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Announcing the first expansion in more than 40 years of the venerable New Penguin Parallel Text series.

Here is the perfect introduction to contemporary Japanese fiction. Featuring many stories appearing in English for the first time, this collection, with parallel translations, offers students at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature without having to constantly consult a dictionary. Richly diverse in themes and styles, the stories are by well-known writers-like Haruki Murakami and Banana Yoshimoto-as well as by emerging voices. Complete with notes, these selections make excellent reading in either language.

About the Author

Michael Emmerich has translated more than a dozen books of Japanese fiction and nonfiction, including novels by Banana Yoshimoto and Yasunari Kawabata. He is an assistant professor of East Asian languages and cultural studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
