Japanese Literature Challenge 14

The original post on my blog is here.

The Japanese Literature Challenge is now in its fourteenth year. It runs from January, 2021 through March, 2021. All that is required is that we read a book translated from the Japanese and share our thoughts on it via our own blog and/or social media using #JapaneseLitChallenge14.

If you choose to do so, you can link your reviews to the official review site here.

My personal plan is to read, and review, the following books:

  • Breasts and Eggs by Meiko Kawakami
  • Earthlings by Sayaka Murata
  • Klara and The Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro (published March 2, 2021)
  • The Phonebooth at the Edge of the World by Laura Imai Messina (published March 9, 2021)
  • First Person Singular by Haruki Murakami (published April 6, 2021)
  • Lady Joker by Kaoru Takamura (published April 13, 2021)
