Promotional Information

"Like Mizoguchi in his classic film Ugetsu Monogatari, Anthony Chambers has captured the haunting, emotion-charged atmosphere of Ueda Akinari's tales. This superb new translation reveals their central place in the millennium-long tradition of Japanese fiction." -- Howard Hibbett, professor of Japanese Literature Emeritus, Harvard University

About the Author

Ueda Akinari (1734-1809), one of the great writers of Japanese fiction, was also a scholar, poet, physician, and tea master. Anthony H. Chambers is a professor of Japanese literature and literary translation at Arizona State University. He has translated many works of Japanese literature, both classical and modern, and is the author of The Secret Window: Ideal Worlds in Tanizaki's Fiction.

Reviews

"Chambers's edition of Tales of Moonlight and Rain is well worthwhile... Highly Recommended." -- The Complete Review "Japan scholars and people who just like weird, spooky stuff should enjoy this new edition of Akinari's classic." -- Brad Quinn, Daily Yomiuri "Chambers's new translation is a lucid addition to the handful of previous versions." -- James Lasdun's, The Guardian
