DescriptionHaunting representations of time and space constitute the Japanese modernist landscape depicted in this volume of 14 stories from the 1910s to the 1930s. These stories experiment with a protean modernist style in the vivacious period between the nation-building Meiji and the early years of Showa. A valuable teaching text not only for the study of modern Japanese literature, but for world literature, global modernism, and utopian studies as well. The volume also includes drawings by contemporary artist Sakaguchi Kyōhei.

the stories Yiu has collected in Three-Dimensional Prose are as compelling as the best canonical modernist work remains even decades after its creation. . . . He helps us to see with fresh eyes fiction that helps us to see with fresh eyes the world.-- "Kyoto Journal"
