Cynthia Kazuo Ishiguro moved to Britain when he was 6, is a British citizen, and writes in English, so likely he could be deleted as well.

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Anna wrote: "Deleted (authors are not Japanese)
Memoirs of a Geisha
Modern Japanese Literature: From 1868 to the Present Day
Anthology of Japanese Literature: From the Earliest Era to the Mid-Nineteenth Century"


The two anthologies DO contain works by Japanes authors, as a matter of fact. They are compilations of Japanese literature, albeit edited (i.e., annotated and introduced) by a Westerner -- one of the foremost scholars on Japanese history and literature. On that basis, I would vote to add them again.

Agree on Ishiguro, at least those of his books that are not set in Japan (e.g., The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, both of which I've deleted). A Pale View Of Hills, on the other hand, IS set in Japan ...

Grace #25, Alexei Maxim Russell is not Japanese either.

edit: also Imogen Rose at #96


Dioni (Bookie Mee) Deleted the books by Chinese authors. Seems some people have a hard time differentiating between Chinese and Japanese..
