Life for Sale by Mishima Yukio

Life for Sale by Mishima Yukio

Review by Susan Meehan

A welcome addition to the English language translations of Yukio Mishima’s work in the lead-up to the fiftieth anniversary of his death, it is an exuberant if patchily saucy read and reveals a different angle to Mishima.

My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki

My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki

Review by Azmina Sohail

My Year of Meats is essentially a story of the human life and the human body. It asks us to question what it means to be a woman, what we put in our bodies and how our offspring will value themselves in a world we create.
