These three are my own copies, the first a recent used bookstore find. The two books of short stories are wins from Tony's January in Japan. (Thank you, thank you.)
I've been saving them for this challenge.
The Journey; Osaragi, Jirō; Ivan Morris (translator)
Blue Bamboo: Tales; Dazai, Osamu; Ralph McCarthy (Translator)
Still Life and Other Stories; Shono, Junzo; Wayne P. Lammers (Translator)
A Drifting Life; Tatsumi, Yoshihiro; Adrian Tomine (editor); Taro Nettleton (translator)
This one is a humongous (800+ pages) biography in graphic format. I
found it on the bookshelf at the community college library where I have a
weekly meeting. I am intrigued. I'll start with this since it is a
library book. Due in ten days but classes aren't in session so renewal
shouldn't be a problem if I don't finish.
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage; Murakami, Haruki; Philip Gabriel (Translator), Jay Rubin (Translator)
I was pleased to find that my public library already has this
book on order, which means I was able to place a hold for when it comes
in. I think I got in quickly enough to be at the top of the Queue.
