The fourteen distinct voices of this collection tell fourteen very different stories spanning sixty years of twentieth-century Japanese literature. They include a nostalgic portrait of an aristocratic Meiji family in Kafu Nagai's 'The Fox', a surprisingly cheerful celebration of postwar chaos in Sakaguhi Ango's 'One Woman and the War,' a chilly assessment of modern society in Wantanbe Jun 'ichi's 'Invitation to Suicide,' and much more.
