Study of Flowers, 1866 (detail) - Frederic Bazille.
I’m glad you like my blog. Its pretty clear that I love Japanese lit from the book hauls that I’ve been posting. If you want to become acquainted with more Japanese authors then I first suggest you follow akutagawaaweek who posts classic Japanese fiction by author Ryunosuke Akutagawa.
I’m not sure how far your taste in books extends so I’ll try and recommend a wide variety of authors and books.
