Review: The Showa Anthology: Modern Japanese Short Stories

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

This was a trudge of a read to get through. Some of the stories were amazing like Kobo Abe's, Jun Ishikawa's, and Osamu Dazai's. This anthology came out in the 70's, so the translation seems awkward at times. This book has college text written all over it but very few would read the whole thing. Read full review
