Overview

This collection features a brilliant new translation of the Japanese master’s stories with an introduction by Haruki Murakami. Akutagawa’s disturbing tales of human passion capture the cultural upheaval of early twentieth century Japan, ranging from “In the Grove,” the basis of Kurosawa’s famous film Rashomon, to Akutagawa’s later, more autobiographical writings.
