Shopper on the Verge of Death, the second illustrated story in the Lycos Anthropos collection will hopefully one day be translated into Japanese.
In the meantime some dear Japanese friends have given me various ways to say the title, or something like it, in their native tongue. The candidates include:
今にも死にそうな客, which means something like At the Point of Death;
今にも死にそうな買い物客, which might mean This was at the Point of Death Shoppers;
and (my favorite)
危篤の買い物客 (transliteration: Kitoku no Kaimonokyaku), which might mean Shopper Critically Ill.
