Some of the Best Modern Japanese Fiction
a book list by DeDe G., Blogger at A Year of Books
A few years ago I grew very tired of reading novels that were nothing special. I was in a major rut. A friend of mine recommended I read something by Haruki Murakami. I took her advice and it opened a door into the world of Modern Japanese Fiction. Since this genre is likely quite different from anything you've read, I'm happy to start you off with the flashlight worthy novels below. Some will move you, some will thrill you, and some will make you laugh. Enjoy!
