    A gorgeous collection of fantastic and dreamlike tales by one of the world's most innovative contemporary writers.
    Chosen as a 2005 Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year, Where Europe Begins has been described by the Russian literary phenomenon Victor Pelevin as "a spectacular journey through a world of colliding languages and multiplying cities." In these stories' disparate settings—Japan, Siberia, Russia, and Germany—the reader becomes as much a foreigner as the author, or the figures that fill this book: the ghost of a burned woman, a traveler on the Trans-Siberian railroad, a mechanical doll, a tongue, a monk who leaps into his own reflection. Through the timeless art of storytelling, Yoko Tawada discloses the virtues of bewilderment, estrangement, and Hilaritas: the goddess of rejoicing.

    In a future time and place … a Gender War reaches its terrifying zenith. 
      
    Welcome to the future, where women have been infected with a virus that turns them into witches and men have formed a militarized cult to exterminate them—the Witch Doctors. You can survive here, if you're lucky; but only if you swear to one of the dominant practices—Puritanism or witchcraft—and are willing to check your humanity at the door in the process. Because in the future, being a man means donning black and white and carrying a fire-breathing musket—the better to incinerate witches by—while being a woman means to live as the undead or a white-eyed practitioner of the black arts. Either way, humanity is doomed. That is, unless a single man or woman can resist—and in so doing, find the courage to cooperate, even love, again. 
      
    Will it be Satyena, the beautiful young witch prone to kindness and compassion? Patrobus, the salty platoon sergeant with a secret past? How about Aluka, the intersex witch-doctor caught between worlds? Dive into these tales of the Sex War to find out—tales told in the dystopian tradition of Fahrenheit 451 and Logan's Run—stories at once brutal and beatific, halting and surreal. Do it today, before the future they portend becomes reality …
