Meet two fresh voices from Japan, offering a unique spin on literary genres. Soji Shimada’s The Tokyo Zodiac Murders expose the dark underbelly of Tokyo through the decades in a playful mix of crime and mystery genres. Kyoko Yoshida’s debut story collection Disorientalism absorbs diverse cultural references to present a distorted and dystopian vision of the country.
