More on January in Japan

Today I’ve posted another appetiser on the January in Japan blog, a post I published a while back on translation and Japanese literature – please click here to see it 🙂

If you’re interested in the whole event, please sign up by commenting on any post, and also follow the new blog – there’s lots coming up!

Next week, I’ll be posting the first in my J-Lit Giants series, brief introductions to Japanese writers with suggestions for starter books.  Number one next Wednesday will be Natsume Soseki, and I also have a post on Yukio Mishima (and possibly a guest post on Osamu Dazai) ready to go.

If you would be interested in contributing to that series, please let me know – whether you would like to talk about the Murakamis, Natsuo Kirino, Yasunari Kawabata, Kenzaburo Oe or Hiromi Kawakami, I’d love to publish your thoughts and advice!

So, in short:
  – Have a look at the translation post
  – Follow the January in Japan blog
  – Get ready for J-Lit Giants
  – Let me know if you want to contribute

See you next Wednesday 🙂

  1. The link to your older blog post doesn't seem to work, Tony. I would love to participate in any way I can: read, comment, link my own reviews, review for you. I am a big fan of Japanese literature (I studied Japanese at university, but that's a very long time ago!)


  2. Marina – That's strange… I've fixed it, so I hope it works now. It's actually been reposted on a new blog, so please vist and follow that blog as I'll be posting more on there over the next couple of months 🙂
