Tokyo Decadence: 15 Stories by Murakami Ryū

Tokyo Decadence: 15 Stories by Murakami Ryū

Review by Chris Corker

Images by Erica Facey

Images by Erica Facey

Review by Chris Beckett

Erica Facey’s delightful bilingual collection, Images, is made up of one-vertical-line haiku in the Japanese, and 3-line haiku in English. The Japanese section starts from the right and meets its English counterpart in the middle coming the other way.

Salad Anniversary by Tawara Machi

Salad Anniversary by Tawara Machi

Review by Chris Beckett

Tawara Machi’s poems are short but lively and personal. They feel like an album of small photos telling a story, so engaging and contemporary that it becomes part of the reader’s own album, his or her own story.

Review by Alice French

Horses, Horses, in the end the Light Remains Pure is an emotional, historical and, above all, literary triumph that really must be experienced first-hand.
