A dream-like, emotionally charged tale by a bold new voice in Japanese fiction

4 stars out of 5

"Kashimada’s writing is exceptional"

Kashimada’s writing is exceptional; this collection is dark and suffocating. It is part of a trend in Japan of female authors rewriting traditional and well-loved stories through a feminist lens, and is a welcome addition to the works by Japanese women being translated into English.
