She’s home–again. The girl we thought had left home for good.

Like the bread crumbs Hansel and Gretel left in the forest, like a dog marking it’s territory, her things–earrings, wallet, keys, money, clean and dirty laundry–make a path from her room, through the entry hall, into the living room, once around the dining room and across the  sofa bed where she insists on camping.

She has jet lag, which means she is ready for conversation first thing in the morning. Our quiet mornings are shattered–for the time being, as we reluctantly  (or not) do as we are told.

Nobuko Takagi Visits Indonesia 高樹のぶ子先生の最後のSIAの旅

Filed under: English entries,翻訳業,高樹のぶ子 — admin @ 15:21:45

Author Nobuko Takagi has been visiting Asian countries as a part of her Soaked in Asia (SIA) Project in conjunction with the the University of Kyushu, “soaking in” the culture and meeting fellow writers. For each country, Takagi has written a short story which is first published in a  magazine (Shincho) and then posted on her blog. The final country she visited was Indonesia, and her last short story is “Fragrant Harum Diary,” set in Bali.

I’ve been honored to translate six of the ten short stories, all available in both English and Japanese on the SIA blog, including “Tomosui” (set in Thailand) winner of the most recent Kawabata Yasunari Literature Award.

Short stories are a special pleasure to work on because they offer a “literature experience,” without having to complete an entire book over several months. Ms. Takagi’s stories have been extra special because they have given me a taste of countries I’ve never been to.

I think my personal favorite was “The Chili Pepper Sisters,” a story  that starts out philosophically on a Korean farm and ends hilariously–in a ○○○ at Narita Airport.
