On Monday, March 4th, at 7 p.m., downstairs at 52 Prince Street, join the International Literature Book Club, led by Sarah McNally. We will discuss The Emissary by Yoko Tawada, translated from the Japanese by Margaret Mitsutani.
In this slim, impactful novel, surrealist master Tawada (Memoirs of a Polar Bear, The Naked Eye, etc.) imagines a dystopian Japan reckoning with its own identity. . . . An ebullient meditation on language and time that feels strikingly significant in the present moment. -- Kirkus Reviews
