Broken Bridge: Fiction From Expatriates in Literary Japan
Suzanne Kamata (ed); Donald Richie (in). This collection of short stories by non-Japanese who choose to live in Japan is an absorbing look at the Outsider in a nation that does not absorb foreigners easily. Postwar literary Japan has confronted its expatriate writing community with a challenging mental & physical landscape. Foreigners in Japan -- gaijin -- are often placed upon a pedestal, only to find themselves placed out of reach. In their isolation, they may turn to each other for comfort & conversation . . . . This anthology presents stories from the period after the Occupation until the present day by 36 non-Japanese writers, including Phyllis Birnbaum, Alan Brown, Meira Chand, Alex Kerr, Leza Lowitz, Edward Siedensticker, & Philip Whalen. “Marvelous”.
