This book is intended to encourage the reading, study, and appreciation of contemporary Japanese fiction and, through it, an understanding of Japan and Japanese culture. The various chapters, including the Syllabus at the end, aim to stimulate and encourage general readers and students to deepen their knowledge of the available literature. The Syllabus in particular aims to encourage the teaching of Japanese literature in the classroom, at both high school and university level, by supplying the teacher and student with study aids. The book is based on an important and much-discussed contemporary theme, that of identity.
