Japanese Tales of Lafcadio Hearn

Review by Azmina Sohail

This collection of fantasy tales is a great example of how literature has evolved and should continue to evolve in every sense of the word; in representation, theme and language.

Japan and the West: An Architectural Dialogue by Neil Jackson

Japan and the West: An Architectural Dialogue by Neil Jackson

Review by Andrew Nishiyama Taylor

This book discusses the architectural influence that Japan and the West have had on each other during the last 150 years. Based on extensive research, this book provides a synthetic overview that brings together the main themes of Japanese and Western architecture since 1850 and shows that neither could exist in its present state without the other.

The Memory Police by Ogawa Yoko

Review by Jill Dobson

The novel takes place on an unnamed island where, for the past 15 years, things have regularly disappeared, not just physically but from memory. This disappearance is enforced by the Memory Police, the only manifestation of authority.

Japanese Larder by Luiz Hara

Japanese Larder by Luiz Hara

Review by Laura Richardson

The Japanese Larder goes beyond being simply a recipe book and rather is an informative introduction to a wide and varied range of those Japanese ingredients. It helps to expel the myth that Japanese food is complicated to make and brings a range of new and exciting dishes to your dining table.
