“Apparitions: Ghosts of Old Edo” by Miyuki Miyabe

"Apparitions: Ghosts of Old Edo" by Miyuki Miyabe

"In old Edo, the past was never forgotten. It lived alongside the present in dark corners and in the shadows. In these tales, award-winning author Miyuki Miyabe explores the ghosts of early modern Japan and the spaces of the living world—workplaces, families, and the human soul—that they inhabit. Written with a journalistic eye and a fantasist’s heart, Apparitions brings the restless dead, and those who encounter them, to life."
