Book #19 - Kuhaku

Kuhaku & Other Accounts from Japan
Essay/Story Anthology - Edited by Bruce Rutledge, Designed/Illustrated by Craig Mod


Rating: 4

Fun to read, it's also an insightful glimpse at problems in contemporary Japanese society, from taking out the trash, and doggie obsessions, to marital infidelity and suicide. I'd recommend it to anyone who's lived in Japan, or is interested in modern Japanese culture with all its quirks. A beautifully-bound and designed book, I'll definitely look for other releases by Chin Music Press.
