[I-House] Barry Yourgrau and Kawakami Mieko Dialogue

Author-perfomer Barry Yourgrau, who has been writing surreal, funny, very brief stories

will be coming to Japan for the first time in 12 years. He will engage in a dialogue with

author-poet Kawakami Mieko, whose short stories capture the epiphanic moment when ordinary life

turns to drama. The two distinguished authors will talk about short stories, life, and creativity.

The moderator will be prominent literary scholar and translator Shibata Motoyuki,

who translated six works of Yourgrau’s.
