I’m the daughter of itinerant merchants. I was born in a flophouse, and I’ll die in the upstairs of a café. - And are your parents still peddling? - Uh huh. They're moving around the far edge of Western Japan.plain2018-07-15T22:50:10-04:00David Ambaras1337d6b66b25164b57abc529e56445d238145277

The first film adaptation of Hayashi Fumiko's 1930 quasi-autobiographical account of gendered marginality, material hardships, and troubled relationships (it was remade in 1962 by Naruse Mikio). Hayashi's book and its two sequels sold 600,000 copies between 1930 and 1932. Hayashi was the daughter of a woman in her third marriage; her father refused to acknowledge her as his legitimate daughter, and soon soon took in a geisha as a mistress, prompting mother and daughter to leave the house. Hayashi's mother then married another man twenty years younger than she, and the three of them worked as peddlers in northern Kyushu, Japan's coal country. After completing her schooling, Hayashi moved to Tokyo, where she took a range of jobs, including maid, factory worker, and café waitress, as she pursued a literary career. Biographical details from Lane Dunlop, "Preface," in Fumiko Hayashi, Floating Clouds, tr. Lane Dunlop (New York: Columbia University Press, 2006). For a translation of Diary of a Vagabond, see Joan E. Ericson, Be a Woman: Hayashi Fumiko and Modern Japanese Women's Literature (Honolulu: University of Hawai`i Press, 1997).plain2020-06-23T13:54:14-04:001935P. C. L.
