Review: Kenzaburo Oe's The Changeling

Occasionally I contribute to the really awesome blog Three Percent, which is devoted to literature in translation (the name coming from the fact that only 3% of books published in America are things in translation). They're a great source for news about literary matters as well as reviews for new books. In fact, you should most definitely check out their Best Translated Book Award, of which you can see the longlist here.

Anyway, you can see a review of Kenzaburo Oe's The Changeling that I wrote here. The book doesn't come out until March, but it was a great read and I highly recommend you read it when it comes out.

If you're interested, I also have a review of Yoko Ogawa's The Housekeeper and the Professor and a commentary on the handling of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 in English. (Hurray for shameless self-promotion!)
