Beschreibung

  • Kawakami is an author known and reviewed around the world

  • Manazuru received great praise when Counterpoint released it in 2010; the book already has reviews by Booklist, the Paris Review Daily, the Independent, and Publishers Weekly.

  • This is a reissue of a quiet, beloved novel by celebrated Japanese author, Hiromi Kawakami (the original 2012 Counterpoint edition was titled The Briefcase, 9781582435992)

  • This reissue will coincide with Europa's publication of Kawakami's The Nakano Thrift Shop (9781609453992, June 2017) and Counterpoint's re-release of Strange Weather in Tokyo, another lauded Kawakami novel (9781640090163, August 2017)

  • "[In Japan] we have something called 'palm-of-the-hand stories,' brief and strangely evocative pieces of fiction so short they might fit in your palm...conjuring an underlying, unseen world that lies beyond with just a brief description or a few words." -Hiromi Kawakami

  • The two re-released novels complement each other: both are concise, poetic meditations on the cyclic patterns of loneliness and love—one protagonist is in the city, the other is on the seaside

  • Translator Michael Emmerich was a Costen Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University

  • Bestselling author Hiromi Kawakami's acclaim for her essays, stories, and novels include the Pascal Short Story Prize for New Writers and the Akutagawa Prize. Her novel Strange Weather in Tokyo was shortlisted for the 2013 Man Asian Literary Prize and the 2014 International Foreign Fiction Prize. Manazuru won the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission prize. She lives in Japan, where she taught biology and is a member of the Science Fiction Research Association.

    Michael Emmerich is the translator of several books, He holds a PhD in Japanese Literature from Columbia university and was a Costen Postoctoral Fellow at Princeton University.
