Recent Translations of Japanese or Korean novels?
June 3, 2013 10:03 PM Subscribe
I've been on a Murakami bender for a while, and I have only two novels of his left to read. I'd like to find some other Japanese or Korean novels in translation, now that I can see the end of all this is near.

I'm particularly interested in stuff that's been written very recently. I'm not necessarily looking for the deepest stuff out there, just good fun reading that gets me turning pages. Extra points for stuff that's written for a domestic as opposed to international market. I'm not so into the fantastic elements of Murakami as I am the realistic, so I'd prefer not to read anything that's too oriented toward fantasy.
Thanks for your help!
