By Yasunari Kawabata

Translated through J Martin Holman

Please be aware, this can be various than "The Izu Dancer and different Stories"; not just is it a special translation, yet this anthology consists purely of reports via Kawabata, whereas the opposite comprises writings of Inoue as well.

This anthology includes tales Kawabata wrote among 1923 and 1929. those tales are available in a separate translation within the "Palm-Of-Hand" tales that I uploaded to the tracker. regardless of being such early works, they express an career with attractiveness, reminiscence, and wish (both fulfilled and unfulfilled).

I can't suggest Kawabata hugely adequate. For these searching for a kick off point, i'd recommend the fast novel 1000 Cranes. it truly is fairly a stunning paintings.
