COMPARATIVE LITERATURE STUDIES Nonetheless, East-West Montage is a useful resource for students and scholars of Asian diaspora studies who are looking for a fresh perspective on the rich and disparate cultural phenomena and texts that have materialized around the idea of the Asian body. As Ma argues, the idea of montage may well point to the future of Asian diaspora studies as a sibuxiang discipline ("unlike anything else"). Alexander C. Y. Huang Pennsylvania State University The Japanization of Modernity: Murakami Haruki Between Japan and the United States. By Rebecca Suter.

Murakami Haruki's popularity extends from his native land, Japan, to the West, especially to the United States, as well as to other (East) Asian countries, such as China, Taiwan, and South Korea. In the United States, English translations of Murakami's works, mostly novels, are often produced amazingly quickly by Jay Rubin, Alfred Birnbaum, and others, and Haruki may be the most translated among contemporary Japanese authors.
