Here is a collection of eight tales set in medieval Japan. Modeled on the lively literary styles of setsuwa, oto-zoshi, and sekkyo bushi, themes range from the comic to the erotic and from the adventurous to the bizarre. Umehara delights in confronting the reader's preconceptions, breaking the established taboos of contemporary Japanese culture.
