Do you happen to have Osamu Dazai's "Blue Bamboo"? I have here two novels by Banana Yoshimoto (NP and Kitchen).

of Osamu Dazai I have Silence and No Longer Human-also I have a kindle edition of his just translated School Girl-I have for Yoshimoto her new The Lake, Asleep and Hardboiled- I would be happy to trade any one of these for NP-do you have any other Japanese novels you might want to trade?

I'm interested in trading Yoshimoto's NP for Dazai's No Longer Human. I am, however, residing in Naga (Bikol). If it's okay with you, perhaps we could exchange books via DHL or JRS Express?

I would love to trade books with you but I think we will find the cost of the exchange via dhl too high-if you or a friend or family member ever come to the Manila area (I am in Quezon City) please contact me and we can set up an exchange

regards

Question lang from an ignoramus like me, what's the appeal of Japanese literature?
