Hiromi Itō and Jeffrey Angles are both award-winning writers, and Angles has translated a number of Itō’s works. Together they will discuss the publication of Killing Kanoko / Wild Grass on the Riverbank (published by Tilted Axis); a landmark dual collection by Itō, in a "generous and beautifully rendered" translation by Angles. Now widely taught as a feminist classic, Killing Kanoko is a defiantly autobiographical exploration of sexuality, community, and postpartum depression, featuring some of Itō’s most famous poems.
