About Monkey Business:
Monkey Business International is the in-translation offspring of the Tokyo-based magazine Monkey Business, which was founded in 2008 by Motoyuki Shibata, one of Japan’s most highly regarded men of letters.
MBI aims to translate and present a wide array of established and emerging authors, showcasing the best of contemporary Japanese literature.
With the generous support of the Nippon Foundation, A Public Space is the publisher and partner of Monkey Business International. Monkey Business and A Public Space first conceived of Monkey Business International when Shibata curated a portfolio of Japanese literature in the debut issue of A Public Space.
