Kirmen Uribe writes in the Japanese magazine Subaru


Kirmen Uribe has published a report on the Japanese literary magazine Subaru in its April issue. The report, entitled “Okinawako leizeak” (The caves of Okinawa) tells the writer’s visit to the archipelago: the continued presence of U.S. military bases, the still open wounds of the Second World War, the decline of Uchinaguchi, the language of the islands. Nami Kaneko has translated the text into Japanese. Each issue invites a foreign author to collaborate. In the March issue the guest was Junot Diaz.
