There is no literary magazine, no magazine period, that I get more excited about reading.” —Laird Hunt, author of Neverhome “I feel my brain being reconfigured every time I read Monkey Business. The Japanese sense of story is very different from the American or Western sense of story, and it always opens up possibilities for me.” —Matthew Sharpe, author of JamestownMonkey Business is the in-translation offspring of the Tokyo-based magazine Monkey Business, which was founded in 2008 by Motoyuki Shibata, one of Japan’s most highly regarded men of letters.Monkey Business aims to translate and present a wide array of established and emerging authors, showcasing the best of contemporary Japanese literature.
