The Only Gaijin in the Village 10


Illustration by Justine Wong

End of the year and I’m pretty burnt out. I started a new job in April which has been great but juggling that alongside all the writing has been tricky. Still, I have two weeks off and nothing to do but write, read, draft a textbook, sand down the living room door, prune the trees… oh god.

Anyway, here’s a few links to things I’ve published recently. The latest chapter of The Only Gaijin in the Village is up on Gaijinpot, as is my overview of Miyuki Miyabe‘s translated career. Over on Japan Times I had the good fortune to attend a symposium on translation in Tokyo which you can read all about here.

So a happy winterval to you all, enjoy the year-end list and another viewing of Die Hard and as I said to my students in the last class of the year: don’t study too much and don’t forget to drink… I mean… you know what I mean.
