Dolce Belleza has been graciously hosting the Japanese Literature Challenge for 7 years! This year, it runs from June 1, 2013 until January 30, 2014. It requires the reading of at least one work of Japanese literature (or poetry) written by a Japanese author (or poet).
It is high time I create this post.
Recap of what I read:
Possible titles for Challenge 8:
“Strangers”/or In Search of A Distant Voice, by Taichi Yamada
The Face of Another, by Kobe Abe
An Artist of the Floating World, by Ishiguro
Manazuru, by Kawakami
Volcano, by Shusaku Endo
