Summary (From the publisher):

A showcase of Dazai's range of styles, from the poignant childhood recollections of "Memories", to the samurai buffoonery of "A Poor Man's Got His Pride", to reworked folk classics such as the title story, "Crackling Mountain". By turns hilarious, ironic, introspective, mystical and sarcastic, the eleven stories in this collection present the most fully rounded portrait available of a tragic, multifaceted genius of modern Japanese letters.
