Palm-of-the-Hand Stories.
by [Japanese Literature] Kawabata, Yasunari.

Publisher Information:
North Point, San Francisco: 1988.

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This volume collects for the first time in English over seventy of the Nobel Prize winner's "palm-sized" stories. Yasunari Kawabata felt the essence of his art was to be found not in his longer works but in a series of short stories?which he called "Palm-of-the-Hand Stories"?written over the span of his career. In them we find loneliness, love, and the passage of time, demonstrating the range and complexity of a true master of short fiction.
