Read in March, 2010

A strong collection of stories, some realist, most blending fantastic elements from Japanese folklore with everyday life and well-drawn characters. What I loved about this book, apart from the strength of the writing, was all the little details of Japanese life - customs, beliefs, food, objects. And the fantasy elements are frightening and wondrous. Fans of Hayao Miyazaki's films will love this but so will anyone who likes a good short story.
