New Writing From Japan at Words Without Borders.
*The second part of Words Without Borders issue of New Writing From Japan has recently gone up with an excerpt from Chichi to Ran/Breasts and Eggs, translated by Louise Heal Kawai, Kawakami Mieko's Akutagwa Prize winning novella which has recently been published in French translation by Actes Sud, so here's hoping. The issue also features translations of Tsushima Yuko, Asa Nonami, Wataya Risa, Motoya Yukiko, Suzumo Sakurai, Nomura Kiwao and again comes with an editorial piece from Michael Emmerich.
