Japanese edition of Nguyen Nhat Anh’s novel published

VOV.VN - The Vietnamese novel ‘Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass’ (Toi Thay Hoa Vang Tren Co Xanh) by Nguyen Nhat Anh, has been published in Japan, according to Youth Publishing House.

The novel was translated into Japanese by Prof Kato Sakae, who previously translated the Japanese version of Anh’s novel “Mat Biec” (Deep blue eyes).

Prof Kato Sakae said one of the highlights of Nguyen Nhat Anh's novel is that the characters are invested with such unique qualities, that even when the novels are put down, they still appear vividly in the readers' minds.

Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass’ tells the story of deprived childhood in a rural village with 81 chapters which function as 81 short stories.

The story was adapted into a movie by Vietnamese-American director Victor Vu in October 2015, receiving praise from film experts and readers.

The film is now screening at cinemas in Japan.

Prof Kato Sakae hopes that Japanese readers will find illuminating perspectives of Vietnam’s society and culture through both the film and novel.
