Short Story du Jour #8 – Mazakon

The title of today’s story,  “Mazakon,” means “Mother Complex” or “mama’s boy”  in English. The author, Mitsuyo Kakuta, is very popular in Japan, but not so well known in the United States. I like her work because she writes about ordinary people and daily life whereas a lot of Japanese fiction in translation is kind of out there.
