Congratulating Our Colleagues – Lynne Kutsukake

The translation by Lynne Kutsukake of the writings of the contemporary Japanese author Masuda Mizuko has been published; it is entitled Single Sickness and Other Stories (Cornell University East Asia Series, 2011) and distributed by University of Hawaii Press.  These collected stories illustrate the powerful way Masuda’s fiction taps into an undercurrent of disquiet and loneliness that pervades contemporary urban society in Japan. Lynne Kutsukake, as many of you know, after retiring from the University of Toronto Library, has been pursuing her own writing career. In 2010  she was one of three finalists for the Journey Prize, the prestigious award given by the Writer’s Trust of Canada, for the short story entitled Mating published in The Dalhousie Review.
