Here are stories about both the living and the dead by the foremost innovator of Japanese modernism. In this remarkable collection of short stories, the lands of both the living and the dead are equally dark and mysterious worlds where logic and reality are subject to constant change and where ideas about identity and self are continually questioned. Considered one of the foremost innovators of Japanese modernism, Hyakken incorporates a distinctly non-Western set of myth and folklore to evoke a society on the brink of enormous change.
