The setting sun by Osamu Dazai( Book )
170 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,267 libraries worldwide
"This powerful novel of a nation in social and moral crisis was first published by New Directions in 1956. Set in the early postwar years, it probes the destructive effects of war and the transition from a feudal Japan to an industrial society. Ozamu Dazai died, a suicide, in 1948. But the influence of his book has made "people of the setting sun" a permanent part of the Japanese language, and his heroine, Kazuko, a young aristocrat who deliberately abandons her class, a symbol of the anomie which pervades so much of the modern world." -- Publisher's description
No longer human by Osamu Dazai( Book )
143 editions published between 1948 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,158 libraries worldwide
"A decadent novelist's autobiographical masterpiece, a perennial bestseller in Japan with fans all over the world, retold by a maverick manga author! In the first such attempt, the drawings within are not 'flipped'--a left-to-right version was prepared simultaneously by the artist with Western translations in mind. In this first of three volumes meet Yozo Oba, a youth who believes survival means clowning."--Page 4 of cover

The schoolgirl by Osamu Dazai( Book )
33 editions published between 1948 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 98 libraries worldwide
"The novella that first propelled Dazai into the literary elite of post-war Japan. Essentially the start of Dazai's career, Schoolgirl gained notoriety for its ironic and inventive use of language. Now it illuminates the prevalent social structures of a lost time, as well as the struggle of the individual against them--a theme that occupied Dazai's life both personally and professionally. This new translation preserves the playful language of the original and offers the reader a new window into the mind of one of the greatest Japanese authors of the 20th century"--Page 4 of cover

He fears he may see his own future going down the same path. But, despite his fears he reads on now smitten with Oba and the cast of fre-nemies around him. Oba's Second Memorandum focuses on his college days. Increasingly paranoid about keeping up appearances he begins to neglect his studies and his ambitions of becoming an artist are now a thing of the past. He is spending money left and right.
