As a traveler to Japan, I was looking for some literature which would give me insights into the culture. As a woman, I always want to know how females fare in a culture. This book was perfect. Made up of many short stories, it gave me glimpses into the writing of celebrated Japanese writers. I would not rate all of the stories as great by my standard, but they all gave me a bit more understanding of how people respond to their culture.

Stories are beautifully written and give you a sense of Asian culture minus the stereotypes. The stories are often poetic. You are right there in the scenes, but authors are not so conscientious that they tell you everything. They sometimes write with a distant eye and allow you to use your imagination. Stories range from thirty-something married women being jelous of twenty-something married women to slick geisha girls. I am not Asian and enjoyed learning about the culture through the talented writers, who gave the stories a soul without having an agenda.
