A Golden Crown Literary Society 2009 Award Winner for Anthology!

Sexuality, literature and social movements in Japan from the early 20th century until
today, converge in this ground-breaking anthology. This collection features an historical perspective on lesbian literature and activism in Japan as well as erotic poetry, a movie screenplay, science fiction with a queer twist, classic love stories, humor and more. Taken as a whole Sparkling Rain will not only delight the adventurous reader with its fiction, but gives an overview of lesbian life in Japan. The fact that in Japan’s notoriously patriarchal culture, women who love other women still dare to write about their love, gives us all courage.
