The Woman in the Dunes - Kobo Abé

1964 - Alfred A. Knopf, New York - First Edition in English
Are you shoveling to survive, or surviving to shovel?

Japan’s Kafka. Abé’s most celebrated novel. A brilliant, claustrophobic, mysteriously existential tale, remarkable for its hypnotic descriptions of the sand that dominates the book.

Published in 1962, to spontaneous acclaim, translated into 20 languages and adapted for a Cannes festival award-winning film directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara and scored by Toru, Abé wrote the screenplay.

Translated from the Japanese by E. Dale Saunders. With drawings by Machi Abé.
