        The Three Pleasures joins a short list of literature that examines this period of history, and writing that exposes prejudice, discrimination and harm is always worthy of a read. It’s a failing, though, that the novel’s fact-exposing style favours historical accuracy over the fiction that can make the past feel present. These are my reading recommendations for contemporary Japanese fiction in translation. I chose these books for the beauty and depth of their writing, the quality of their translation, and their thematic relevance to broader social and historical currents. The River Ki, by Sawako Ariyoshi The Square Persimmon, by Takashi Atōda Supermarket, by Satoshi Azuchi Twinkle.
