March 7, Tokyo, Japan. Inter Ice Age 4′ is a chilling, futuristic novel by one of Japan’s greatest living writers.

It is the account of Professor Katsumi of Tokyo who has assembled and programmed a computer which, given all the available facts about a person or situation, can predict the future. Because a similar computer in Moscow is being use to make forecasts of a political nature, his institute’s governing body decides to avoid politics and try to forsee the future of an individual.

A man is picked, apparently at random, only to be murdered before he can be programmed, but the computer can still read his mind.

The resulting involvements are complicated by a climactic shift–Inter Ice Age which puts earth under water. Of all the great Japanese novelists, Kobe Abe was indubitably the most versatile.

With The Ruined Map, he crafted a mesmerizing literary crime novel that combines the narrative suspense of Chandler with the psychological depth of Dostoevsky. Nemuro, a respected salesman, disappeared over half a year ago, but only now does his alluring yet alcoholic wife hire a private eye.

The nameless detective has but two clues: With these he embarks upon an ever more puzzling pursuit that leads him into the depths of Tokyo’s dangerous underworld, where he begins to lose the boundaries of his own identity. Translated from the Japanese by E.

Like an elegantly chilling postscript to The Metamorphosis, this classic of postwar Japanese koo describes a bizarre physical transformation that exposes the duplicities of an entire world. The narrator is a scientist hideously deformed in a laboratory accident—a man who has lost his face and, with it, his connection to other people. Even his wife is now repulsed by him.

His only entry back into the world is to create a mask so perfect as to be undetectable. But soon he finds that such a mask is more than a disguise: A remorseless meditation on nature, identity and the social contract, The Face of Another is an intellectual horror story of the highest order.

Collection Du monde entier. One of the premier Japanese novels of the twentieth century, The Women in the Dunes combines the essence of myth, suspense, and the existential novel. In a remote seaside village, Niki Jumpei, a teacher and amateur entomologist, is held captive with a young woman at the bottom of a vast sand pit where, Sisyphus-like, they are pressed into shoveling off the ever-advancing sand dunes that threaten the village.
