June 15: The Summer of Genji

The Tale of Genji

We've teamed up with the crew at Open Letters Monthly for a summer-long group read of The Tale of Genji. We've broken it down into bite-sized portions of about 90 pages per week, and we'll be blogging it every step of the way. If you'd like to join in, we're going to be blogging the read starting June 15 at The Summer of Genji. And we've chosen Royall Tyler's translation, which can be purchased here as a Penguin Classic.

Thanks as always for reading The Quarterly Conversation!
