A Shameful Life by Dazai Osamu

Review by George Mullins

Ningen Shikkaku (translated as ‘A Shameful Life’) still persists as one of the most widely read and critically acclaimed novels in Japan. Mark Gibeau’s latest translation certainly provides a refreshing and interesting reconstruction of this Japanese classic.
