Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 11 years ago. This was the first Kobe Abe book I've read. It a short quick read, but rather crazy. I'm not sure what really happened or why. A lot of things are so random and therefore entertaining. I would recommend this book to those who like well written books with great imagery and that are thought-provoking, but ultimately lack the usual plot structure and conclusion of a story.
