Japanese Literature Challenge!

I was thinking to myself- what type of book haven’t I read lately?  The answer comes to me- Japanese lit!  I usually love any Japanese lit I come across (an exception being The Wind Up Bird Chronicles, which I really didn’t see why such a fuss was made over it- don’t hate me!).

I have just read/will read Tanizaki’s Naomi, Soseki’s I Am a Cat, and Ueda’s collection of supernatural short-stories Tales of Moonlight and Rain.  I am open to suggestions, and will probably come up with a few more myself.

One Thought on “Japanese Literature Challenge!

  1. I am adding Snow Country by Yasunari Kawabata and After the Banquet by Yukio Mishima to the list. I may also try Murakami again, although I don’t know which one.
