About

The Akutagawa Prize-winning author Hiroko Oyamada will visit Boston and New York to launch her English-language debut novel The Factory in November. Told in three alternating first-person narratives, The Factory casts a vivid – if sometimes surreal – portrait of the absurdity and meaninglessness of modern life. With hints of Kafka and unexpected moments of creeping humor, Oyamada is one of the boldest writers of her generation. David Boyd, the translator of this book, will join Oyamada to discuss her work.
