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.
