Lost Japan

by Alex Kerr
£9.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)

Lost Japan by Alex Kerr An enchanting and fascinating insight into Japanese landscape, culture, history and future.
 
Originally written in Japanese, this passionate, vividly personal book draws on the author's experiences in Japan over thirty years. Alex Kerr brings to life the ritualized world of Kabuki, retraces his initiation into Tokyo's boardrooms during the heady Bubble Years, and tells the story of the hidden valley that became his home.
 
But the book is not just a love letter. Haunted throughout by nostalgia for the Japan of old, Kerr's book is part paean to that great country and culture, part epitaph in the face of contemporary Japan's environmental and cultural destruction.
 
Winner of Japan's Shincho Gakugei Literature Prize, and now fully revised in a new edition.
