Bruno Gmünder’s third English-language Tagame book includes the short stories “Confessions" (告白, 2008) and "End Line,” from 2012, in addition to the titular 112-page tale “Winter Fisherman’s Lodge” (冬の番家, 2011). Fisherman’s Lodge is a work of subtle beauty and arguably one of Tagame’s greatest masterpieces. Translation by MASSIVE’s Anne Ishii.
This latest collection of stories by GENGOROH TAGAME, Japanese master of gay manga, features stories about solitary men who will discover the limits of their sexuality. In the book’s title feature, Fisherman’s Lodge, an anonymous old watchman of a remote sea lodge is forced to entertain a male mistress. For the lowly gangster at the center of Confessions, a suicide mission to entrap a cop becomes a night of sexual bliss. In End Line, a football champion must endure an arousing disciplinary hazing. All of these outcasts will discover new frontiers of their own sexual desire by finding each other.
