RESTLESS WAVE: My Life in Two Worlds by Haru Matsul

RESTLESS WAVE: My Life in Two Worlds

Email this review


A moving and poetic autobiography of a Japanese woman, a personal picture of the times in which she lives, pro-Japanese, non military, propaganda, and a plea for Japanese living here, and not subscribing to the stand their country is taking. From a childhood near Tokyo, posed with the problem of absorbing Western ways without being absorbed by them, she left it to her elder sister to strike the desired balance, while she forged new links between East and West, through more schooling, a love marriage, a job and America. Not a book destined for the success of the Sugimoto books, but none the less it fills a very real need and has its high moments. Please note this as the first of the Modern Age publications under usual price conditions.
