Only one author, Yoriko Shono, has won Japan’s Triple Crown of literary prizes to date
The so-called Triple Crown of Japanese literary prizes for new authors consists of the Akutagawa Ryunosuke Prize, the Mishima Yukio Prize and the Noma Prize. Yoriko Shono, author of Time Slip Kombinat, who describes her style of writing as “avant-pop”, is the only author to-date to have achieved the Triple Crown by being awarded all three prizes.
