Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Akutagawa’s disturbing tales of human passion capture the cultural upheaval of early twentieth century Japan, ranging from “In the Grove,” the basis of Kurosawa’s famous film Rashomon, to Akutagawa’s later, more autobiographical writings.
