It’s here! Japanese Literature Challenge 5
1 June, 2011
This is what I’ve been waiting for! Dolce Bellezza is once again hosting the tremendously popular Japanese Literature Challenge 5. It runs from 1st June 2011 until 31st January 2012 and all you need to do is read at least one book of Japanese literature. Easy, right? And so much fun. I will, of course, be attempting to read more. Plus there is the added excitement of a new novel by Banana Yoshimoto, The Lake, which is out soon and Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 out in October. SO EXCITING.
I’ve got the following already lined up:
Scandal by Shusaku Endo
Silence by Shusaku Endo
Snow Country by Yasunari Kawabata
A Thousand Cranes by Yasunari Kawabata
The Sound of the Mountain by Yasunari Kawabata
Beauty and Sadness by Yasunari Kawabata
Spring Snow by Yukio Mishima
Let’s see how many I can get through this year. And you never know what other titles I may dig up.
So, will you join us?
