Tanpen Shōjo: Short Stories Anthology (短編少女)


I really like anthologies that collect stories according to some thematic key. After all, we usually get a selection of texts that the editors liked the most, representative of a certain period or literary movement. But if we’re talking about contemporary texts, isn’t it fun to give writers a topic and see how they approach it and how they interpret it?

These are the idea for this pocket series by Shūeisha. Girls are the theme of this volume. Nine contemporary, award-winning Japanese writers in short forms present their perspective on what it is like to be a girl, a teenager, a young woman. The stories are of various genres – from slice of life to those bordering on horror or detective story. Among the authors you will find, among others, Shion Miura, known from The Great Passage, or Kyoko Nakajima, the author of The Little House, but also a group of interesting authors not yet translated into other languages.
