Palm-of-the-Hand Stories

Yasunari Kawabata; Translated from the Japanese by Lane Dunlop and J. Martin Holman

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968, the novelist Yasunari Kawabata felt the essence of his art was to be found not in his longer works but in a series of short stories--which he called "Palm-of-the-Hand Stories"--written over the span of his career. In them we find loneliness, love, and the passage of time, demonstrating the range and complexity of a true master of short fiction.
