Black Eggs
Poems 
by Kurihara Sadako, translated, introduced & annotated by Richard H. Minear

“What more heartbreaking description of the bomb could anyone fashion? Fascinating reading.”
John Bradley in The International Examiner’s Pacific Reader

“This poetic voice reveals the horrors of the world for which she dreams only of peace. At times it weeps in despair; at other times, it sings of hope and promise. It is a treatise of intellectual and social history . . . worthy of the highest recommendation.”
David Andrew Schmidt in Education about Asia  

“Moving and powerful poems offering an image of Japan and the Japanese that is all too rarely available.”
W. D. Earhart in Friends Journal

“One of Japan’s greatest 20th century poets, [and] one of Japan’s bravest and most honest social and literary writers.”
Mark Antony Rossi in Japanophile
