    1 thought on “The Cannery Boat and Other Japanese Short Stories

    1. Kobayashi's best known work is enjoying a resurgence of recognition among Japanese "freeters" 70 years after he was arrested for being a communist and tortured to death in prison. This vivid tale of workers on a factory boat portrays the hardships and cruelty suffered by the workers at the hands of the (capitalist) ship superintendent.

    2. Picked it off the local library shelf. Rather bland. Do not read unless you're adamantly fond of Japanese communist propaganda.
