Where Europe Begins: Stories

Translator: Susan Bernofsky

Paperback

Price: $15.95

Overview

Chosen as a 2005 Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year, Where Europe Begins has been described by the Russian literary phenomenon Victor Pelevin as a spectacular journey through a world of colliding languages and multiplying cities. In these stories’ disparate settings–Japan, Siberia, Russia, and Germany–the reader becomes as much a foreigner as the author, or the figures that fill this book: the ghost of a burned woman, a traveler on the Trans-Siberian railroad, a mechanical doll, a tongue, a monk who leaps into his own reflection. Through the timeless art of storytelling, Yoko Tawada discloses the virtues of bewilderment, estrangement, and Hilaritas: the goddess of rejoicing.
