    love the Lsfcadio Hearn translations of classic stories

    DO NOT BUY THIS EDITION (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform). It is awful. Formatting doesn't seem to exist so it is a nightmare trying to determine when one story ends and another exists and is generally not a pleasant experience to read anyway as everything is in one block paragraph. Try and get a copy of the Tuttle edition, it seems like they actually want people to read their books. AVOID THIS.
