Here are two of them; both are part of the Maigret series, by Georges Simenon. I hadn’t read any of Simenon’s books before these, and enjoyed both very much.
The book was written in the year 1212. The translation in this edition (Stone Bridge Press,1996) is by Yasuhiko Moriguchi and David Jenkins.
“Poet, reporter, social philosopher, monk, Kamo-no-Chomei is one of the great noble and solitary figures in all of Japanese literature, his incomparable Hojoki as relevant today as it was eight hundred years ago…”--comments, from the back-cover, by Sam Hamill.
