9780811220378: The Bridegroom Was a Dog (New Directions Pearls)

Internationally acclaimed author Yoko Tawada's most famous ― and bizarre ― tale in a stand-alone, New Directions Pearl edition.

The Bridegroom Was a Dog is perhaps the Japanese-German writer Yoko Tawada’s most famous story. Its initial publication in 1998 garnered admiration from The New Yorker, who praised it as, “fast-moving, mysteriously compelling tale that has the dream quality of Kafka.”

The Bridegroom Was a Dog begins with a schoolteacher telling a fable to her students. In the fable, a princess promises her hand in marriage to a dog that has licked her bottom clean. The story takes an even stranger twist when that very dog appears to the schoolteacher in real life as a dog-like man. They develop a very sexual, romantic courtship with many allegorical overtones ― much to the chagrin of her friends.

About the Author:

Yoko Tawada―“strange, exquisite” (The New Yorker )―was born in Tokyo in 1960 and moved to Germany when she was twenty-two. She writes in both Japanese and German and has received the Akutagawa Prize, the Adelbert von Chamisso Prize, the Goethe Medal, and the Tanizaki Prize.

Margaret Mitsutani has also translated Japan’s 1994 Nobel Prize laureate Kenzaburo Oe.

Review:

...Tawada's slender accounts of alienation achieve a remarkable potency. -- The New York Times Book Review, Michael Porter
