    In “Hiding from the Rain” by expatriate Chinese Nobel laureate Gao Xingjian, two young women take shelter from a storm, unaware that their conversation is being overheard by a silent old man. “The Post Office” by Indian Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore blurs the lines between realism and fantasy as a terminally ill boy’s wish is granted. “The Lady Aoi” by Japanese Nobel nominee Mishima Yukio is a story of jealousy, memory and ghostly possession.
