Meet the Author: Kyoko Nakajima

Kyoko Nakajima is perhaps the brightest star of Japan’s modern literati.

The landmark 2010 novel, The Little House, cemented Nakajima as one of the most subtly powerful writers of her generation.

Taki, maid to a well-to-do family in antebellum Tokyo, both effusively describes and cagily omits details of her experiences, stringing readers along until a pivotal epilogue reorients everything.

At this reading and Q&A, Nakajima appears in conversation with her English translator, Ginny Tapley Takemori.
