    There was so much Japanese fiction to talk about that I forgot to include one of the very books that inspired this post. A True Novel by Minae Mizumura is a beautifully produced contemporary work that retells the doomed romance at the heart of Wuthering Heights in an Asian setting.

    Oh, and the queens of Japanese punk, Shonen Knife!

    Who has time for another book anyway, James—now that you’ve given us Baby Metal! Great piece. I’m hungry for sushi.
