Love of mountains : two stories by Kōji Uno( )

18 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an early well-known work, "In the Storehouse" (Kura no naka, 1919), Uno's ludic posturing gently deflates the pretentions of the narrator, the suffering writer Yamaji. Any attempts at narrative coherence are subverted as the garrulous and endlessly self-absorbed Yamaji piles digression upon digression while struggling to regain control over the story by repeatedly interrupting the fitful narration to address his readers directly and plead their indulgence. "Love of Mountains" (Yamagoi, 1923), another story from Uno's early period, blends lyricism with buffoonery in a seamless flow that celebrates the grandeur of the Japanese Alps while quietly undermining the reliability of perception and parodying the romantic's response to mountain landscapes."--BOOK JACKET. "Elaine Gerbert's evocative and graceful translation is preceded by an interpretive introduction that places Uno's writing in critical perspective."--BOOK JACKET
Strange tale of panorama island by Ranpo Edogawa( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novella's utopian vision, argues translator Elaine Gerbert, mirrors the expansionist dreams that fed Japan's colonization of the Asian continent, its ending an eerie harbinger of the collapse of those dreams.Today just as a new generation of technologies is transforming the way we think--and becoming ever more invasive and pervasive--Ranpo's work is attracting a new generation of readers. In the past few decades his writing has inspired films, anime, plays, and manga, and many translations of his stories, essays, and novels have appeared, but to date no English-language translation of Panoramato kidan has been available. This volume, which includes a critical introduction and notes, fills that gap and uncovers for English-language readers an important new dimension of an ever stimulating, provocative talent
