Editorial Reviews

Bret McCabe - Baltimore City Paper
“Kanai has an ephemeral sensuality that offsets and compliments her modulated voices, who guide you through mini epics in this crisp, cool collection.”
Todd Shimoda - Asian Review of Books
“Kanai's stories remind me of Italo Calvino or Jorge Luis Borges, with their stylistically vague flatness yet strong character-driven underpinnings… I highly recommended them and look forward to more.”
Steve Finbow - The Japan Times
“Realities shift and are at once dreamlike and tangible. The range of subject matter and register is dazzling.”
