Kanji Hanawa was author of two critically acclaimed Red Circle Minis: Backlight, translated by Richard Nathan, and The Chronicle of Lord Asunaro, translated by Meredith Mckinney.
Kanji Hanawa, a former professor of French literature and prolific author of short stories and novella, who was twice nominated for Japan’s most prestigious literary award the Akutagawa Prize, will be greatly missed by all of the team at Red Circle Authors and his many readers in Japan and internationally.
