Inui Akito in Shincho

Néojaponisme contributor Inui Akito has a short story called “鮒(フナ)のためいき” (“Sigh of a Crucian Carp”) in the March 2008 issue of esteemed Japanese literary journal The Shincho Monthly 『新潮』.

Last October, I translated two of Inui’s very short pieces “Deep Within the Island” and “Cutting Off a Piece of the Sky” for the site. He is the founder of Tokyo theatre group Crack Iron Albatrossket (Tetsuwari). (Enjoy this skit “Cock the Cock” from their DVD).
