Chasing the moon (Tsuigetsuki)

By Sugimoto Akiko

The following stories, some entirely fictional, others partly autobiographical, were written by Sugimoto Akiko, who studied Chinese literature for three years at Beijing University in the late 1990s. Born in Tokyo in 1977, Akiko has been an avid reader and student of Japanese and Chinese literature since her childhood, largely inspired by her grandmother's older brother, Inoue Yasushi, who treated her as a grandchild, and whose study she frequented when in elementary and middle school. All the articles were woodblock illustrated by Kubota Kenji.
