September misses Fairyland and her friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. She longs to leave the routines of home, and embark on a new adventure. Little does she know that this time, she will be spirited away to the moon, reunited with her friends, and find herself faced with saving Fairyland from a moon-Yeti with great and mysterious powers. Here is another rich, beautifully told, wisely humorous and passionately layered book from New York Times bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente. Praise for the FAIRYLAND series: 'One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century.' Time Magazine (A Time Best Book of 2012) 'A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian fairy-tale, done with heart and wisdom.' Neil Gaiman 'A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy-tale - full of oddments, whimsy and joy.' Holly Black, author of Zombies vs. Unicorns and the Spiderwick Chronicles 'September is a clever, fun, stronghearted addition to the ranks of bold, adventurous girls. Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic.' Tamora Pierce, author of The Immortals series 'Valente is making new myths right now, before our eyes. Don't miss the show.' Lev Grossman 'One of the strongest fantasy novels for young readers I've had the pleasure of getting lost in...There's as much Phantom Tollbooth here as there is Narnia...Shot through with menace and heroism, you never know what's coming next.'

‘How many times have I told the sun to take care of himself God only knows. I told him, Look here old boy; you are atleast trillion years old. You are no longer the young sun who used to laugh at the smoking earth and play with the stars of distant galaxy.’ ‘Have you seen the sun when he was young? My dear cow, then how old are you?’ Why is the sun so anxious about his favorite child, the earth? The law of the Fairyland forbids a fairy to touch a human being.

The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Literature

Now the younger Rurikōmaru's curiosity was a passing, whimsical thing, like the
fancies of a young child about some fairyland. ... Night after night Senjumaru
gazed at the innocent face of the boy lying fast asleep across from him and
wondered why he ... As the days passed, the look on Senjumaru's face, his
gestures and movements, gradually lost any trace of a child's natural liveliness
and simplicity.

This comprehensive anthology collects works of fiction, poetry, drama, and essay-writing from a pivotal time in Japanese history. In addition to their literary achievements, the texts reflect the political, social, and intellectual changes that occurred in Japanese society during this period, including exposure to Western ideas and literature, the rise of nationalism, and the complex interaction of traditional and modern forces. The volume offers outstanding, often new translations of classic texts by such celebrated writers as Nagai Kafu, Shimazaki Toson, Natsume Soseki, Kawabata Yasunari, and Yosano Akiko. The editors have also unearthed works from lesser-known women writers, many of which have never been available in English. Organized chronologically and by genre within each period, the volume reveals the major influences in the development of modern Japanese literature: the Japanese classics themselves, the example of Chinese poetry, and the encounter with Western literature and culture. Modern Japanese writers reread the classics of Japanese literature, infused them with contemporary language, and refashioned them with an increased emphasis on psychological elements. They also reinterpreted older aesthetic concepts in light of twentieth-century mentalities. While modern ideas captured the imagination of some Japanese writers, the example of classical Chinese poetry remained important for others. Meiji writers continued to compose poetry in classical Chinese and adhere to a Confucian system of thought. Another factor in shaping modern Japanese literature was the example of foreign works, which offered new literary inspiration and opportunities for Japanese readers and writers. Divided into four chapters, the anthology begins with the early modern texts of the 1870s, continues with works written during the years of social change preceding World War I and the innovative writing of the interwar period, and concludes with texts from World War II. Each chapter includes a helpful critical introduction, situating the works within their literary, political, and cultural contexts. Additionally, there are biographical introductions for each writer.
