The Woman in the Dunes



New to Penguin Modern Classics

One of the premier Japanese novels in the twentieth century, THE WOMAN IN THE DUNES combines the essence of myth, suspense, and the existential novel. In a remote seaside village, Niki Jumpei, a teacher and amateur entomologist, is held captive with a young woman at the bottom of a vast sand pit where they are pressed into shovelling off the ever-advancing sand dunes that threaten the village.
