Grass for my pillow by Saiichi Maruya( )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in Japan during and after the Second World War. The story of Shokichi Hamada, a conscientious objector who dodges military service by simply disappearing from society, taking to the country as an itinerant peddler until the end of the war in 1945"--Jacket
The Modern Japanese prose poem : an anthology of six poets : Miyoshi Tatsuji, Anzai Fuyue, Tamura Ryūichi, Yoshioka Minoru, Tanikawa Shuntarō, Inoue Yasushi by Tatsuji Miyoshi( )

17 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the prose poem came into existence as a principally French literary genre in the nineteenth century, it occupies a place of considerable importance in twentieth-century Japanese poetry. This selection of poems is the first anthology of this genre and, in effect, the first appearance of this kind of poetry in English. Originally published in 1980. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve
Yokomitsu Riichi, modernist by Dennis Keene( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and other stories of Yokomitsu Riichi by Riichi Yokomitsu( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mature woman by Saiichi Maruya( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author takes a serious theme and serves it up in a highly entertaining form. The central character is a bright, attractive, and strongwilled single woman working in the male-dominated environment of a major daily newspaper. One of her editorials angers a powerful supporter of the ruling political party; the government puts pressure on her through the newspaper; and the woman retaliates, using a network of friends and relatives - including an actress who was once closely involved with the prime minister, and a fellow journalist with writer's block - to defend herself. The result is a slyly accurate picture of contemporary Japan that not only tells us about the role of women there in the 1990s, and about bribery and coercion at the highest levels of society, but treats us to the sort of brilliant gossip that makes a good novel great fun to read
