Summary:
"One morning, a woman treads on a snake. She comes home that evening and realises the snake has moved into her house and is saying she is her mother. So begins the story of a woman trying to live with a snake, with herself, or perhaps with something else all together. This volume includes the three stories A Snake Stepped On, Missing, and Record of a Night Too Brief which together won the Akutagawa Prize in 1996. Filled with fantastically multicoloured images and unexplained collapses in time and place, these highly surreal, meticulously worked stories of longing and disappearance, love and loathing are the work of an enormously talented writer at the top of her game." -- Provided by publisher.
