Wondrous Brutal Fictions is the first work of its kind in English. It provides insights into everyday life, folklore, and religion in early modern Japan and illuminates the origins of the joruri (Bunraku) puppet theater. R. Keller Kimbrough possesses a superb command of classical Japanese, and his English renditions of these gripping, sometimes supernatural stories are lively and very well done.
