Takahashi Genichiro hosts lectures in Hanoi, HCMC

The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam is featuring Japanese author Takahashi Genishiro in series of lectures in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City from March 10-12.

Takahashi’s debut work “Sayonara, Gyangutachi” was published in 1982 and considered by critics to be an important literary masterpiece of postwar Japan. It was honored by the Gunzo Literary Award for First Novels and has been translated into many languages including English, Italian, Brazilian and Portuguese.

The Nha Nam Publishing Company translated the novel to Vietnamese in 2013 with financial support of the International Exchange Foundation of Japan.

The lectures will introduce Takahashi’s work and discuss contemporary literature.
This event is a series of cultural exchange activities in 2014 with the Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam.
