Bookslinger Update: “Mandarins”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Mandarins by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, published by Archipelago Books. In Mandarins, Akutagawa blends a sense of sad inevitability with subtle irony. Reflective and often humorous, these tales reveal an enormous amount about Japanese culture, but above all the inner struggles of the characters always strike the universal.
