Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Mukoda's wonderful stories vividly present the strengths and sorrows of modern Japanese women.--Gail Tsukiyama "Superbly rendered into English."--Publishers Weekly
