Three works by one of Japan’s most celebrated novelists will be published in English for the first time this summer in an attempt to broaden his appeal among Western readers.

A London-based Japanese historian and curator has translated three works by Nastume Soseki (1867-1916). They are “Inside My Glass Doors” (1915), “210th Day” (1906) and “Spring Miscellany” (1909). The last is being published together with a collection of essays and letters written by Soseki while he was in London.
