'One never tires of reading and re-reading his best works. Akutagawa was a born short-story writer' Haruki Murakami The stories in this fantastical, unconventional collection are subtly wrought depictions of the darkness of our desires. From an isolated bamboo grove, to a lantern festival in Tokyo, to the Emperor's court, they offer glimpses into moments of madness, murder, and obsession. Vividly translated by Bryan Karetnyk, they unfold in elegant, sometimes laconic, always gripping prose. Akutagawa's stories are characterised by their stylish originality; they are stories to be read again and again.

Akutagawa was a born short-story writer. - Haruki Murakami The quintessential writer of his era. - David Pearce Extravagance and horror and in his work but never in his style, which is always crystal-clear. - Jorge Luis Borges He was both traditional and experimental and always compelling and fearless... There is no writer quite like him. - Howard Norman

Övrig information

RYUNOSUKE AKUTAGAWA was one of Japan's leading literary figures in the Taisho period. Regarded as the father of the Japanese short story, he produced over 150 in his short lifetime. Haunted by the fear that he would inherit his mother's madness, Akutagawa suffered from worsening mental health problems towards the end of his life and committed suicide aged 35 by taking an overdose of barbiturates.
