In this dazzling and critically acclaimed debut collection, Mary Yukari Waters provides a rare glimpse into the heart and humanity of a society in the midst of immense change. These graceful, expertly crafted stories, set in Japan, explore the gray areas between the long shadow of World War II and the rapid advance of Westernization. The women and children who inhabit this terrain have lost husbands and fathers to the war, and ancient traditions to American pop culture. Parents are mystified by the future of forks and knives, hairspray and hip-hop; children embrace it.

With these stories of upheaval and renewal, estrangement and reconciliation, Waters provides keen insight into the experience and sensibility of different generations as they confront an altered world. A virtuoso collection infused with warmth, The Laws of Evening announces a stunning new voice in fiction.

Sena Jeter Naslund Author of Ahab's Wife; or, The Star-Gazer and The Disobedience of Water Every syllable, every sentence, every story has the grace of a ceremonial gesture in Mary Yukari Waters's The Laws Of Evening. Like haiku, each story precisely embodies a moment and evocatively transcends it. The stories defy the finiteness of narrative: they begin almost imperceptibly -- it seems we have been spellbound our whole lives in this magic theater; and certainly they evaporate or sublime, but do not end.
