Acerca de


In addition to 'The Glass Slipper', this collection contains eight other stories held together by a common thread of self-perception: that the self has such depths that at times it can appear to be illusory.

About the Author:

Shotaro Yasuoka was born in Kochi Prefecture, Japan, in 1920. The son of a veterinary corps-man in the Imperial Army, his early life involved frequent moves from one military post to the next. After the war, Yasuoka came down with spinal caries, and, with no chance for treatment without money, took on a series of odd jobs. It was while he was bedridden with this disease that he began his writing career. A leading figure in postwar Japanese literature, in 2001 Yasuoka received the Cultural Merit Award for his lifetime of literary activities.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1757 to Royall Tyler and Mary (Steele) Tyler, Tyler attended the Boston Latin School, Yale and then Harvard, where he earned a reputation as a quick-witted joker. After graduation, he briefly served in the Massachusetts militia under John Hancock during the abortive Rhode Island expedition. In late 1778, he returned to Harvard to study law, and was admitted to the Massachusetts bar in 1780. He opened a practice in Braintree, Massachusetts, eight miles outside of Boston. After a brief stint in suppressing the 1787 Shays's Rebellion, Tyler moved to Boston and boarded in the house of Elizabeth Palmer. After unsuccessfully courting Abigail Adams for many years, in 1794, he wed the Palmers's daughter, Mary Palmer, took her to his new home in Vermont, and with her had eleven children. In 1801, Tyler was appointed to the Supreme Court of Vermont as an assistant judge, and was later elected chief justice. In 1812 he ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate. In 1826, he died in Vermont, of facial cancer that he had suffered from for ten years.
