Twelve stories from twenty-first century Tokyo and a novella. Debut collection from award-winning writer.
Leza gives an overview of the book:
"There is an affecting, charming quality to all these stories. Beautiful." --Gina Berriault
"If you've lived in Japan, this collection will awaken memories. If you haven't, you'll find yourself wanting to."
"Lowitz's stories are frequently popularted by the kind of people you might expect to find in a pulp novel--movie stars, revolutionaries, even a princess--but this book is no guilty pleasure. Lowitz, who draws on her experience as a filmmaker and an art critic, crafts each piece up with insight and elegance. With her poet's eye, she serves up exquisite details." --Suzanne Kamata, Kyoto Journal
