Book Details

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.

In The News

"These 60 stories by 1968 Nobel laureate Kawabata are engagingly and sensitively translated. ...Kawabata is a master storyteller reminiscent of James Joyce, but with a smaller, sharper, more incisive vision. Highly recommended." - Library Journal
