Child of Darkness
Yōko and Other Stories
by Furui Yoshikichi, translated, introduced & commentated by Donna George Storey

“An important author who portrays troubled individuals caught between the demands of society and the horror of solitude. Till now, his work has been hard to find in the West, though he has received major literary prizes in his homeland.”
William Ferguson in The New York Times Book Review
 

“An ideal book for inclusion in survey courses on modern Japanese literature. . . . a useful resource for courses on Japanese anthropology and contemporary society.”
Sonja Arntzen in Choice
 

“This is a major and long-overdue addition both to the corpus of contemporary Japanese literature in English and to critical commentary on that corpus.”
Roy Starrs in The Journal of Asian Studies
 

“Touchingly introspective, hauntingly stark, and compellingly readable in a disturbing way.”
Erik R. Lofgren in World Literature Today
