Introducing the first in a series of podcasts exploring the world of Japanese literature. Hosted by translator Polly Barton in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich.

Episode one focuses on KESHIKI, an exciting series of eight chapbooks showcasing some of the most talented writers working in Japan today.

KESHIKI, published by Strangers Press (part of the UEA Publishing Project) in February 2017, offers unusual perspectives on contemporary Japan from well-known names and new voices – many of which have a particular connection to Norwich, UNESCO City of Literature.

In the first of a two-part conversation, Polly speaks to editors Kate Griffin and Phil Langeskov about the KESHIKI series in general.
