Monkey Business Vol. 5 is now available!

Though you will not find me in this year's volume (I had to take the year off to focus on finishing dissertation/200-pg appendix, the big move to Nagoya, etc), being the good sport that I am, I will continue to promote the project lavishly, as it is hands down the best literary journal of Japanese literature in English translation that the world has ever seen。『Monkey Business』 Vol. 5 , now available in paperback and electronic formats!
