Product description


“Novelists Haruki Murakami and Mieko Kawakami make plans to meet in a cave, trade stories, and roast rats over a campfire. A few pages later, director Hirokazu Koreeda revisits a favorite story by Naoya Shiga, about a barber whose murderous outburst reminds him of Raymond Carver’s writing and inspired his own cinematic ideas. Yōko Ogawa narrates a haunting sequence of illustrations by Canadian artist Jon Klassen. Aoko Matsuda shows us how to physically dissect a misogynist. And that’s before you get to a Noh play, haiku and tanka poems, and the sketches, photographs, and manga of a themed section on the allure of food.” --Roland Kelts, Nikkei Asia

“An astonishment, by turns playful and profound, that makes you wish it were monthly.” --Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

 “MONKEY is full of deep, funny, wild, scary, fabulous, moving, surprising, brilliant work.” --Laird Hunt, author of Neverhome
