Kirmen Uribe’s novel Mussche (Lo que mueve el mundo, Seix Barral, 2013) will be published in Japan by Tokyo Publisher Hakusui Sha. Nami Kaneko will translate directly the text from Basque language. In 2012 the same publisher published Uribe’s first novel , Bilbao-New York-Bilbao (National Book Prize in Spain) with great critical and commercial success. It was elected as one of the best books of the year by the newspaper Mainichi and Vogue Japan.
Also, seven poems of the author just appeared in the prestigious Japanese literary magazine Shichosa, also translated from Basque by Nami Kaneko. Here’s a preview: http://www.shichosha.co.jp/editor/item_1103.html
