Adrian Waller (au); Robert J. Collins (fr). Waller began writing his brilliant columns in Japan Times Weekly in 1990. They are sometimes humorous, oftentimes irreverent, but always a joy to read. This book comprises a collection of short articles & observations from his columns by a sensitive, observant man who, with his family, makes the cultural leap from the West to Japan. His adventures are hilarious, frustrating, & touching. He set out to record his life in Japan, as a family man, with a mixture of humor & irony, always honestly & objectively. His observations on business & government, & the burrs & prickles in an otherwise homogeneous society, are right on target. There is a brilliant piece on the Sanya district of Tokyo -- home of Japanís hidden dropouts.
