Bullfight

Another title to add to the list of books to look out for next year is Inoue Yasushi's Bullfight/Togyu, a notable novella as it in turn won Inoue the Akutagawa Prize. Translated by Michael Emmerich the book is due to be published by Pushkin Press in August 2013, more details and confirmation of course when Pushkin Press release their 2013 catalogue.

Wow! More J-Lit from Pushkin :) That's obviously a concerted decision on the part of the new people at the top...

...not that I'm complaining ;)

Really looking forward to reading Bullfight, I've been tempted to re-read The Hunting Gun or The Counterfeiter recently but will wait for this.

It's great to see some Japanese Literature on the Pushkin list.
