Jayne Joso, Japan Stories | Between the Trees Festival

Jayne Joso reads from her new collection of short fiction Japan Stories (Seren 2021) at Between the Trees festival in South Wales. Set in Japan, each story centres on a particular character – a sinister museum curator, a son caring for his dementia-struck father, a widow in the far north reflecting on her provincial life, a young woman who returns to haunt her killer. Together, these compelling narratives become a mosaic of life in contemporary Japan, its people, its society, its thinking, its character. Japan Stories provides a window into a country we would all love to know more deeply.
