Synopsis: This text presents a searching study of Shimao Toshio and his work. It is not only a thorough assessment of his literary legacy, but also aims to consider the broader issues relating to the emergence and nature of the postwar Japanese sense of identity. The book contextualizes Toshio's "dream stories" as a literary expression of wartime trauma, and argues that Shimao's powerful narration of guilt and victimization challenges standard readings of Japanese war literature. The author links all of the seemingly disparate strands in Toshio's stories, and shows that together they represent a consistent attempt to depict the existence of "the other".

Book Description University of Hawai'i Press., Honolulu., 1998. x + 287pp, index, bibliography, notes, appendix, no dustjacket as issued. "Hailed by the noted critic Karatani Kojin as a more important and lasting writer than Mishima, Shimao Toshio (1917-1986) remains almost unknown in the West. Several of his short stories have appeared in English translation, yet it is only now, with the publication of Philip Gabriel's comprehensive and searching study, that Shimao's work is being introduced to the worldwide audience it deserves. Mad Wives and Island Dreams not only is a thorough assessment of the literary legacy of a highly original and influential writer, but also represents a significant contribution to the consideration of much broader issues relating to the emergence and nature of the postwar Japanese sense of identity."
