The Bear and the Paving Stone

These three dream-like tales of memory and war are part of the Japanese novella series from Pushkin Press, showcasing the best contemporary Japanese writing.

A Japanese man, far from home, travels the countryside of Normandy with a friend – talking about war, literature, and everything in between. As his ideas of his life become more entangled with his personal writing, the pangs of his past and his half-forgotten memories overlap and threaten his peace. Owing a debt to French writers from La Fontaine to Proust, the three fable like tales in The Bear and the Paving Stone are stories of loss, memory and a longing to belong.
