    Aoko Matsuda will be in conversation with Polly Barton on Thursday 1st June. We are delighted to be hosting Aoko at the start of her residency at The Queen’s College Translation Exchange. She’ll be discussing writing, translating & the collection Where The Wild Ladies Are, which was translated into English for Tilted Axis Press by Polly. Tickets for the event are £5 and can be bought in the shop or online here.

    Witty, inventive, and profound, Matsuda Aoko’s collection of linked stories is a contemporary feminist retelling of traditional Japanese ghost stories. As female ghosts appear in unexpected guises, their gently humorous encounters with unsuspecting humans lead to deeper questions about emancipation and recent changes in Japanese women’s lives.
