Japanese Settings, International Themes

images

Looking for a good book? The second in my new series of articles looking at Japanese literature focuses on novels set in the country but written by non-Japanese writers. Featuring famous names like David Mitchell, Kazuo Ishiguro and David Peace, and lesser-known but equally talented authors Jackie Copleton, Nicholas Hogg and J. David Simons, there’s a lot of good reading in there.

Also newly up is my review of Michael J. Green’s By More than Providence, and exploration of US diplomacy in Asia-Pacific.

    I think I would have included Audrey Hepburn’s Neck, Sushi Daze, Japanland, 36 Views of Mt. Fuji, Tales from the Water Trade, Harpoon…..I will probably think of more later. However, you have pointed out some books that I haven’t read and I will check them out. Thank you.
