The moon over the mountain  Cover Image Book Book

The moon over the mountain / by Atsushi Nakajjima ; art by Nekosuke ; translation, Asa Yoneda.

Nakajima, Atsushi, 1909-1942 (author.). Nekosuke, (artist.). Yoneda, Asa, (translator.).


"The Maiden's Bookshelf series combines classic short stories of the early 20th century with gorgeous original artwork to create collectible editions for a contemporary audience. At what cost art? In the course of a routine journey, government inspector Yuan Can encounters his old friend Li Zheng--but not as he remembers him. Transformed by obsession into a hideous beast, Li Zheng spins a tragic tale, and ultimately presents his confidante with a singular request. Dressed in the trappings of 8th-century China, Atsushi Nakajima's meditation on poetry and friendship nevertheless transcends time and language to speak directly to our hearts about what it means to be human."--
