The glass slipper and other stories by Shōtarō Yasuoka( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In addition to "The Glass Slipper," this collection contains eight other stories held together by a common thread of self-perception. Yasuoka writes from the belief that the self has such depths that at times it can appear to be illusory. Set against the chaotic backdrop of the era running from before World War II to just after its end, these stories are infused with a timeless sense of novelty and humor."--Jacket
The tale of the Heike by Royall Tyler( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a reflection on the fleeting nature of power and glory begins The Tale of the Heike, an epic from twelfth-century Japan. Comparable in stature to The Tale of Genji, The Tale of the Heike narrates with wit, energy, and compassion the stories of such unforgettable characters as the ruthless warlord Kiyomori, who dies still burning with such rage that water poured on him boils; Hotoke, the beautiful young dancer who renounces wealth and fame to follow her conscience; Shigemori, the tyrant's righteous son, who struggles against all odds to uphold fairness and justice; and Yoshitsune, the daring commander who defeats the enemy in battle after battle, only to be condemned by his jealous, powerful brother. The Tale of the Heike is a foundation stone of Japanese culture and a major masterpiece of world literature. Lavishly illustrated and accompanied by maps, character guides, and genealogies."--Publisher

The miracles of the Kasuga deity by Royall Tyler( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Near the ancient capital of Nara in central Japan stands the Kasuga Shrine of the old court nobility. The Kasuga Gongen genki ("Miracles of the Kasuga Deity") is a magnificent set of twenty illustrated handscrolls that in 1309 were presented to the Shrine by the leading nobles. These scrolls are known for their paintings, but the accompanying text has never before been translated into another language, and the cult which they represent has never previously been properly examined."--Jacket
Flowers of grass by Takehiko Fukunaga( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Outside Tokyo, a tuberculosis sanatorium in the village of K has a six-bed ward that the narrator, an aspiring poet, shares with a student of linguistics and budding writer named Shiomi. After the stubborn Shiomi insists on undergoing a dangerous surgical procedure and dies in the process, two notebooks turn up in his bedsheets. Flowers of grass unfolds as the narrator reads these two notebooks, asking himself if Shiomi's death was a sort of suicide, and learning the details of his late friend's two great loves: for a brother and sister, both of whom reject him."--Book cover

The Disaster of the Third Princess : Essays on The Tale of Genji by Royall Tyler( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These seven essays by the most recent English translator of The Tale of Genji emphasize three major interpretive issues. What is the place of the hero (Hikaru Genji) in the work? What story gives the narrative underlying continuity and form? And how does the closing section of the tale (especially the ten Uji chapters) relate to what precedes it? Written over a period of nine years, the essays suggest fresh, thought-provoking perspectives on Japan's greatest literary classic
