Has it really been a month since I last posted? I’ve been neck deep in grading at work but the semester is almost over and I’ve got 7 weeks of novel writing planned, I can’t wait. I’ll also be off to Korea and exploring the narrow road to the deep north (Tohoku) as well as sleeping. A lot.
I’ve still found time for my columns on Gaijinpot and my articles for the Japan Times. If you missed them, here’s a few links:
The Only Gaijin in the Village Chapter 5.
Great Japanese Writers: 2. Yukio Mishima.
The Nakano Thrift Shop by Hiromi Kawakami and Allison Markin Powell (translator).
The Diplomat’s Daughter by Karin Tanabe.
The Tokyo Anthology. A collection of writing from Tokyo during the Meiji era.
A Diplomat in Japan by Sir Ernest Satow.
