Critically acclaimed, and winner of both the Kawabata and the Tanizaki awards, Yuko Tsushima lacerates with wisdom and uncomfortable truths. Translated by Geraldine Harcourt in 1988, “The Shooting Gallery” is a compilation of Tsushima’s early short stories, largely based on her experiences as a single mother.

Travel with the weary mother of two boys as she finds strength at a run-down, touristy shooting gallery in the title story; explore the jealousy within the supernatural realm in “The Chrysanthemum Beetle”; or venture into the magical realist world of a city park that harbors the abandoned and unwanted in “The Silent Traders.”

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
