Where the Wild Ladies Are

by Aoko Matsuda

Taking a collection of traditional Japanese ghost stories and crafting them into often humorous yet painfully relevant tales is a move of pure genius by Aoko Matsuda. Taking place in a contemporary setting, with a decidedly feminist bend, Where the Wild Ladies Are takes classic Japanese ghost stories--which make up some of the best in the world--and rewrite them to make them relevant to the current gender climate of modern-day Japan. Witty, biting, and poignant, Matsuda's collection is a pleasantly haunting surprise. — Jessica Esa, Metropolis
