Fiction: "Rumors About Me" by Yasutaka Tsutsui
5/12/2009 5:08:15 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

A translated story from Zoetrope: All-Story.

Since I'm enjoying reading through all of the All-Story back-issues online while listening to the Brewers Game (Manny Parra ... come on, dude!), I thought I'd share this one with you, originally a translation:

It's a humorous piece, and I think that humor carries well from culture to culture. Well worth checking out. Sometimes, humor doesn't translate too well especially from two drastically different communities. But some humor just slides from place to place with a pretty even consistency. Like fart jokes, I would assume.


Cheers,


Ken Brosky
