Please observe, this can be diversified than "The Izu Dancer and different Stories"; not just is it a unique translation, yet this anthology consists simply of news by way of Kawabata, whereas the opposite contains writings of Inoue as well.

This anthology involves tales Kawabata wrote among 1923 and 1929. those tales are available in a separate translation within the "Palm-Of-Hand" tales that I uploaded to the tracker. regardless of being such early works, they express an career with attractiveness, reminiscence, and hope (both fulfilled and unfulfilled).

I can't suggest Kawabata hugely sufficient. For these trying to find a kick off point, i'd recommend the quick novel 1000 Cranes. it really is really a stunning paintings.
