    I first read his novel The Samurai Banner of Furin Kazan Tuttle, 2006 in 2013 and later I read and found his short story Passage to Fudaraku in The Oxford Book of Japanese Short Stories Oxford University Press, 2010 and novella The Hunting Gun Tuttle, 1961 arguably readable since I rarely heard of him but he has written something stylish and humane that inspired me to look forward to reading his other works, e.g The Bullfight 1950 This made me wondered why any of his works was not selected and included in Donald Keene s Modern Japanese Literature From 1868 to Present Day Grove Press, 1994 However, reading and enjoying this three story book finely translated by Michael Emmerich made me, again, to rethink on his literary stature since he was so outstandingly creative and recognized that he won five prizes as well as his wide readership as we can see various novel and short story titles in his biography , we simply can t help doubting if his fame has been honorably justified Life of a Counterfeiter is the first story in this copy the other two being Reeds and Mr Goodall s Gloves.

    This was my first Yasushi Inoue title but it will definitely not be my last Life of a Counterfeiter is a collection of three short stories including the titular story, Reeds, and Mr Goodall s Gloves All three stories are excellent and go a long way in establishing the kind of storyteller Mr Inoue is There is a certain stream of consciousness esque element to these stories that I really liked In Life of a Counterfeiter the main character is supposed to be a biographer of a famous painter Onuki Keigaku but while researching Keigaku, the narrator comes across Keigaku s former friend Hara Hosen who he discovers is a counterfeiter of Keigaku s works The narrator is unwillingly fascinated by this counterfeiter and exerts considerable effort to find out about him, driven perhaps by than just curiousity about this counterfeiter He feels an empathy for Hosen, the counterfeiter, inferring that Hosen s brush with Keigaku s genius may be what propelled the man down such a dark lane and then to his tragic end The story is told in anecdotal bursts and the narrator relays his findings while he goes around living his life and surviving the war that Japan is in the middle of losing at the time I could well imagine myself seated in a cafe or some such place listening t...

    3.5 stars This little book of short stories is elegant and sweet The stories aren t very captivating in themselves, but they way they are written is what keeps you captivated The focus is introspective, mostly on thoughts, feelings, symbols, and themes The beauty ...

    I had randomly picked up this small volume from a library shelf and discovered the sheer delight that is Yasushi Inoue s storytelling Each of the three tales are very loosely connected by the narrator s voice The titular tale had me empathizing with the narrator for taking on a project that then gets sidetracked by his interest in a side story and becomes his main focus of interest The subtle strokes of character build up felt like a Japanese print in their careful choosing, attending to what was left out as much as what has been printed The ability to draw interest to a character that we only meet through others memories and through glimpses of paintings, never directly, added to the feeling of secrecy and quiet slipping past notice of the counterfeiter the other two tales explored gender, time, memories in...

    I really like Inoue s slow and easy style He writes the daily life of his characters without angst or fits of emotion There are moments that Inoue uses to show that the characters are not cardboard These moments are key ones for the characters, but...

    Rather fascinating read Normally I find Japanese writers to be too involved in the fantasy elements of their stories, but Inoue sets out to discuss through his stories the difference between fact and fiction.

    A writer is commissioned to write the biography of a famous painter but becomes fascinated by his shadow, a man who produced forgeries of the artist s work the master forger lives in obscurity and disappointment, oppressed by the reality of the artist whose work he copies.

    The Counterfeiter was one of the better stories I ve read recently Amazing control of narrative theme, touching on authenticity fame and the pursuit of perfection both within the paintings and the fireworks.

    I read The Counterfeiter over the better part of a day It s a short read at a mere 128 pages, and it s a book of short stories It s divided up into three sections, with the title story, The Counterfeiter, taking up most of the book s real estate Obasute and The Full Moon are shorter, and constitute the back half of the book I ll take this story by story, but it s not a huge book, nor an intense read, so this review may run a little short.The Counterfeiter is far and away the strongest and most interesting of the three tales It takes places in post Meiji era Japan, so I found comparisons to The Master of Go almost immediately Both hearken to a lost age and struggle with modernism and the efforts to maintain tradition The Counterfeiter follows a biographer as he travels around Japan during and after World War II, chronicling the life of Keigaku, a famous artist As he struggles to find information about his subject, he becomes interested in a man named Hosen Hara, accused by many in the art world of copying the paintings of Keigaku As the story progresses, it becomes Hosen Hara s biography, and Keigaku, while still remaining the subject of the narrator s eventual work, becomes a background character who serves as constrast.Hosen Hara is the interesting man, for the obvious reason that he is flawed Keigaku is the consummate perfect artist He has never made a mistake, has won all the awards, and is distinguished in his field Hosen Ha...
