It came around quicker than I thought, and here it is: me talking about Japanese literature on Radio 4’s Open Book. It’s also available as a podcast (under BBC Books and Authors). I haven’t listened to it yet because… well, if it’s bad I’ll have to curl up somewhere and never speak to the world again.
Also yesterday, my review of Takamura Kaoru’s Lady Joker: Volume One was in the Japan Times. I talk about it on the radio, but I had time to edit this and cut out my waffle and ums. Probably for the best.
