The Kiriyama Prize WinnerPrevious Kiriyama Prize Winners

The Kiriyama Book Prize has been awarded since 1996. In the first three years of the Prize, only one award was given. Beginning with the 1999 Prize cycle, two books were recognized each year, one fiction and one nonfiction. Most of the past Prize winners are still in print. We hope you'll read them and recommend them to your friends and colleagues.
