About the Author

ALAN BOOTH was born in London in 1946 and traveled to Japan in 1970 to study Noh theater. He stayed, working as a writer and film critic, until his untimely death from stomach cancer in 1993. His highly praised Looking for the Lost is also available from Kodansha Globe.

Reviews

"A marvelous glimpse of the Japan that rarely peeks through the country's public image."--Washington Post Book World "An illuminating book."--The Economist "Alan Booth has given us a memorable, oddly beautiful book."--Asian Wall Street Journal "Fluent in the language, well-informed and disabused, [Booth] is in the fine tradition of hard-to-please travelers like Norman Douglas, Evelyn Waugh, and V.S. Naipaul. A sharp eye and a good memory for detail...give an astonishing immediacy to his account."--Frank Tuohy, Times Literary Supplement "Alan Booth was not only the best travel writer on Japan, but one of the best travel writers in the English language."--Ian Buruma, author of The Wages of Guilt "[Booth] achieved an extraordinary understanding of life as it is lived by ordinary Japanese....Frequently brilliant in his insights."--F.G. Notehelfer, The New York Times Book Review "One of the best foreign observers of Japan today...his book is unsurpassed."--Far Eastern Economic Review "To Travel with Alan Booth is to travel in very civilized company indeed, but also close to the ground. He has a mind that illuminates and enlivens everything it encounters."--Nigel Barley, author of The Innocent Anthropologist "Booth's capacity for rueful, discerning observation will keep him in the front ranks of travel writers for years to come."--Kirkus
