Praise

“Attractive . . . The framing commentary . . . adds to the charm of the whole. . . . How curious, and how touching, that it fell to a peripatetic Westerner to vouchsafe these enchanting homegrown stories the immortality they deserve.” —The Wall Street Journal

“The stories in this new Penguin anthology are why Hearn continues to have a lasting legacy in both America and in his adopted homeland, Japan. . . . . It is a testament to the power of Hearn’s writings that this foreign-born writer has earned a place in the canon of Japanese literature—his work is still celebrated in Japan to this day.” —Colin Dickey, Longreads
