LitFest: Mieko Kawakami with Translators Sam Bett & David Boyd

May 18, 2021 - May 18, 2021 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Virtual Event by City of Asylum

Mixing wry humor and riveting emotional depth, Mieko Kawakami is one of Japan’s most important and best-selling contemporary writers. Mieko’s first novel to be published in English, Breast and Eggs, was rated one of Time Magazine’s 10 best books of 2020. The novel is a radical and intimate portrait of contemporary working class womanhood in Japan, recounting the heartbreaking journeys of three women in a society where the odds are stacked against them. Mieko joins us live from Japan, in conversation with her translators, to discuss Breast and Eggs and celebrate the launch of her newest, highly anticipated English release, Heaven. LitFest 2021 marks the novel’s debut event—an evening not to be missed!
