102 Akutagawa, Ryunosuke RASHOMON AND OTHER STORIES
Tuttle Publishing 2001 0804814570 / 9780804814577 Paperback Very Good 
This fascinating collection gave birth to a new paradigm when Akira Kurosaw a made famous Akutagawa's disturbing tale of seven people recounting the sa me incident from shockingly different perspectives.Writing at the beginning of the twentieth century, Ryunosuke Akutagawa created disturbing stories o ut of Japan's cultural upheaval. Whether his fictions are set centuries pas t or close to the present, Akutagawa was a modernist, writing in polished, superbly nuanced prose subtly exposing human needs and flaws. "In a Grove," which was the basis for Kurosawa's classic film Rashomon, tells the chilli ng story of the killing of a samurai through the testimony of witnesses, in cluding the spirit of the murdered man. The fable-like "Yam Gruel" is an ac count of desire and humiliation, but one in which the reader's sympathy is thoroughly unsettled. And in "The Martyr," a beloved orphan raised by Jesui t priests is exiled when he refuses to admit that he made a local girl preg nant. He regains their love and respect only at the price of his life. All six tales in the collection show Akutagawa as a master storyteller and an e xciting voice of modern Japanese literature.

105 Alai RED POPPIES
Houghton Mifflin 2002 0618119647 / 9780618119646 First Hardcover Fine/Fine 
A tight clean first edition/printing, protected in a new brodart wrapper, n ot price clipped/ex library or a book of the month edition. The sweeping epic novel Red Poppies, by Tibetan author Alai, is set in eastern Tibet in the middle of the last century. It chronicles the waning days of the once-powerful Tibetan chieftains and the rise of the Communist Chinese state. The tale is narrated by the son of one of the most powerful chieftains, a son considered an idiot by his family. But this supposed idiot consolidates his family's power and wealth with peasant good sense and cunning. And cunning is what is required to survive in this brutal world, where tribal revenge is exacted by ordering decapitations and the cutting off of tongues and ears. There's plenty of lusty sex in this picaresque novel, as well as bloody battles, devastating earthquakes, and the political maneuvering of Tibetan monks. The writing, translated from Chinese by Howard Goldblatt and Sylvia Li-chun Lin, is beautiful. In one strange and wonderful scene, mice are drawn to an opium processing shed by the intoxicating aroma; they gather on the rafters, swoon into the vats, and then are cooked and eaten as delicacies.

BLUE SUBURBIA: ALMOST A MEMOIR, Albanese, Laurie
106 Albanese, Laurie BLUE SUBURBIA: ALMOST A MEMOIR
Harper Perennial 2004 0060565632 / 9780060565633 Paperback Near Fine 
Blue Suburbia is a searing memoir so fresh, original, and honest that it wi ll break your heart and renew your faith in the human spirit. With each spare stroke of her pen, Laurie Lico Albanese paints a vivid port rait of the blue-collar landscape of her childhood -- rusted swing sets, au to body shops, greasy hands, home improvements -- taking readers along for the wild, treacherous ride that leads to her escape. Her mother may stand s ilently at the sink year after year, or lie in the basement weeping, but Al banese is determined to flee the deadening certainty of her parents' lives. Her story does not disappoint us. By turns haunting, hilarious, tragic, and romantic, Blue Suburbia is the chronicle of a determined young woman who overcomes family limitations, socio-economic obstacles, and personal fears to build a happy -- and blessedly ordinary -- life. Written entirely in free verse, Blue Suburbia's cadence is a steady, rhythmic heartbeat, pulsing with pain, rebellion, love, and triumph. This is the story many of us might tell, if we had the courage.
