Lament in the Night collects two works by the author Shoson Nagahara. The title novella, originally published 1925 for a Japanese leadership in the United States, follows itinerant laborer Sakuzo Ishikawa he prowls the back alleys and bathhouses of Los Angeles, looking for a meal, a job, or just someone to hold on to. The second novella, The Tale of Osato, follows a young mother working her way through bars and nightclubs after being abandoned by her gambling-addicted husband. This first-ever English language publication of Lament in the Night opens up a realm of American literature that has been woefully unexplored-namely, the literary heritage of non-English-speaking immigrants in America. Written in a dark, hardboiled style, these dazzling exercises in 1920s naturalist noir promise to become classics of the twentieth-century American literature.
