straycatreadsthat asked: Hey! I noticed that you read a lot of Japanese fiction (love it and your blog) - so far I'm only acquainted with Haruki Murakami and Natsuo Kirino. Do you have any recs for expanding my repertoire? Thanks so much!

bookpillows:

I’m glad you like my blog. Its pretty clear that I love Japanese lit from the book hauls that I’ve been posting. If you want to become acquainted with more Japanese authors then I first suggest you follow akutagawaaweek who posts classic Japanese fiction by author Ryunosuke Akutagawa.

the sin of witchcraft >> W I T C H E S
“When, however, one reads of a witch being ducked, of a woman possessed by devils, of a wise woman selling herbs, or even of a very remarkable man who had a mother, then I think we are on the track of a lost novelist, a suppressed poet, of some mute and inglorious Jane Austen, some Emily Bronte who dashed her brains out on the moor or mopped and mowed about the highways crazed with the torture that her gift had put her to.” [Virginia Woolf]
