Description

Part of Japan Now North

Margins to the Mainstream - Tomoyuki Hoshino, in conversation with Deborah Smith

Roco Creative Co-op, Sheffield
Wednesday 28th February 6pm - 8pm

Explore the world of Japanese literature from a new angle! Tomoyuki Hoshino is a novelist who goes where others fear to tread, exploring sexual identity, neoliberalism and power structures in Japanese society in earlier books including We, The Children Of Cats and his latest work – ME: A Novel. Hoshino will be in conversation with the Man Booker prize-winning translator and publisher Deborah Smith in this informal Sheffield setting. The author will read and discuss his work and sign books after the event.
