by Teru Miyamoto (Author), Roger K. Thomas (Translator)

  • Only this award-winning Japanese master’s second book in English (first one published by New Directions in 2009)
  • Inhabitation (In Japanese, HARU NO YUME) is a work that is frequently cited by Miyamoto enthusiasts, and one that will spark interest in English language readers with its arresting imagery.
  • The prismatic nature and arc of Miyamoto’s work, which explores a kind of spiritual or moral isolation, calls to mind that of Carson McCullers or Sherwood Anderson as his American counterparts.
  • Miyamoto is among Japan’s most widely read living authors, born in Kobe, whose first two novels Muddy River (Doro no Kawa) and Firefly River (Hotarugawa) were bestsellers in Japan and won Japan’s most prestigious literary awards, the Dazai Osamu Prize and Akutagawa Prize
