Review of “Partiet” (2000)


Kurahashi Yumio (writer).

Read in 2023.

Read in Swedish in the collection Icke brännbara sopor (2000). The collection does not list the original date of publication.

A Kafka-esque, nihilistically apathetic narrative of Japanese communist activism. It feels patterned after disillusioned Russian writers. The style is well executed, a dirge to the death of idealism.
