With Japanese literature as commercially successful as it has ever been — and unarguably more diverse — a collection of exciting new writing is almost guaranteed to be a success. That’s why publisher Motoyuki Shibata and translator Ted Goossen were eager to get their literary magazine, which originally ran until 2017 under the name Monkey Business, back up and running.

For its launch, the magazine has a new name, Monkey, and a roster of well-known contributors: writers such as Hideo Furukawa, Aoko Matsuda and Hiroko Oyamada; and translators including Jay Rubin, Jeffrey Angles and Lucy North.

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