Book Launch and Talk: The Youth of Things – Stephen Dodd in Conversation with Linda Flores


Dr. Stephen Dodd’s new book, The Youth of Things: Life and Death in the Age of Kajii Motojirô, explores the startlingly beautiful and poetic short stories of Kajii Motojirô, a short-lived writer of the late Taishô/early Shôwa period who has been relatively unexplored until now. His book also aims to place the stories within the wider social and cultural context of the times. At this special launch event, Dr Dodd will join with Dr. Linda Flores (University of Oxford) in discussing the issues relating to Kajii and the broader context.

Date: 7 May 2014 from 6.30pm
Venue: The Japan Foundation, London
