The Fur of the Glacial Mouse
Pieces from a children's picture book 'The Fur of the Glacial Mouse'
by Kenji Miyazawa
Illustrated by Tatsuro Kiuchi
It happens in an express train to Bering. A passenger, who is proud of his luxurious fur coats, especially the one made of only the fur from the necks of glacial mice, is attacked by a group of strange bear-like men! A story that raises a question about the human ego in a surreal and poetic way.
