Taeko Kono

Taeko Kono (1926 -2015) is one of the most important Japanese writers of the second half of the twentieth century. Oe Kenzaburo, Japan's Nobel Laureate, described her as the most "lucidly intelligent" woman writers writing in Japan, and the US critic and academic Masao Miyoshi identified her as among the most "critically alert and historically intelligent." US critic and academic Davinder Bhowmik assesses her as " of the truly original voices of the twentieth century, beyond questions of gender or even nationality."
