Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Originally published in The Atlantic Monthly, in 1958, The Izu Dancer, a story about a young man's travels through the Izu Peninsula, introduced Kawabata's prodigious talent to the West. Since its first printing, Kawabata, winner of the 1968 Nobel Prize, has been recognized as one of Japan's most distinguished writers. Also included in this collection are three stories by the prolific author Yasushi Inoue, the recipient of every major prize in Japanese literature: "The Counterfeiter", "Obasute", and "The Full Moon". Inoue's stories, each of which are at least partially autobiographical, all reveal his great compassion for his fellow human being.

About the Author

Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was one of the first great interpreters of things Japanese for Western readers. His keen intellect, poetic imagination, and clear style have ensured him a devoted readership, among both foreigners and Japanese, for almost a century.
