Reviews
Milebush book group rated this book 3.5/5. Those who had visited Japan particularly enjoyed it with its beautifully written descriptions of the Japanese landscape, providing clear pictures of local scenes. The book is narrated by a a bohemian artist who became a part of the Japanese night life. He looks both backward and forward at the floating world with its cultural and society changes, coming to terms with the behaviour of Japan in World war 2. This makes the novel rather rambling in style and not always easy to follow. However the view overall was an interesting read.
