Tales of Moonlight and Rain


]First published in 1776, the nine gothic tales in this collection are Japan's finest and most celebrated examples of the literature of the occult. They subtly merge the world of reason with the realm of the uncanny and exemplify the period's fascination with the strange and the grotesque. This new translation, by a noted translator and scholar, skillfully maintains the allure and complexity of Akinari's original prose.
