    • This is the book that first got me into Japanese writing. A gift from an older school-friend soon after I left high school, this beautifully-produced little Kodansha paperback of subtle, humorous, painstakingly-crafted stories slowly wormed its way into my heart over several years to become one of my most prized possessions. Man, it's a gas! The first story, 'Plum Blossom By Night', sets the tone: a miniature tour-de-force of social observation, it concerns a too-polite narrator who is accosted [...]


    • Saya membaca versi terjemahan yang diterbitkan oleh Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. Penterjemahnya adalah Fatimah Zainal.


    • I've only read the title short story, but it is wonderful. Melancholic and absurd at the same time. The salamander will stay with me forever.


    • "Salamander" is a terrific story, kind of like a Japanese version of Winnie the Pooh. (These aren't all kids stories, though.) I saw a really crazy modern theater piece (The Other Here by Big Dance Theater) that used it as a found text, along with one other story in this collection -- Life at "Mr. Tange's."


    • This is a great work to read while doing a course on writing, because it seems to break all the known rules, including the one that states that there should be a story arch. The stories set in rural Japan: a farmer has a bull which he lets out for mating, and the bull is stolen. A military man goes crazy after a strange accident.I found the writing beautiful and haunting.



    • Primer contacto con Ibuse. Próxima parada, Lluvia negra.Relatos muy interesantes y breves. Me hubiera gustado leer una traducción más corregida y actual, que el libro tiene ya sus años.
