Saito Sanki (au); Saito Masaya (tr) (in). One of the leading haiku poets of the 20th century, Japanese writer Saito Sanki (1900-1962) also composed short stories populated by quirky characters, all drawn from personal experience. This volume features selections from both genres, published in English for the first time. The stories are based on Saito’s life during World War II, when he lived in a run-down hotel in Kobe. The atmosphere of wartime Japan in a city frequented by the German Navy is recreated in the adventures of a colorful group of Japanese misfits & expatriates stranded in the hotel. Some stories are set in the post-war days & include a visit to Hiroshima, devastated by the atomic bomb, & a lurid description of a brothel built for occupation soldiers.
