The Early Cases of Akechi Kogoro by Edogawa Rampo Part Three
We discuss The Dwarf by Edogawa Rampo. Closing out the collection, this grim tale takes us through murder, love, and the grotesque in what would become known as Rampo’s signature tone. Surrounded by villains and with an unwitting housemaid as his assistant, can Akechi Kogoro get to the bottom of this case in time? With final points on the line the tension is high and Flex may finally be out of his depth. We’re also joined by Paul Daley, Walkley-Award-winning journalist, to talk about the historical barriers that remain in place between Australian and Japanese cultures decades after World War 2, as well as how to find holes in your own understanding of other cultures.
