Summary (From the publisher):

The eleven stories included in this volume suggest the breadth of the author's literary production, ranging from parodies of classical Japanese literature to cosmopolitan avant-garde works, from quasi-autobiography to science fiction. Her subversive fiction defies established definitions of "literature", "Japan", "modernity", and "femininity" and represents an important intellectual aspect of modern Japanese women's literature.
