About the Author

"Horace", "The Shunga Tales", and "Crow, the King of Sumo" are the first of a series of fiction pieces that he will begin to release in 2012. He has also written a collection of short stories, "The Shyest Man in Japan". He is interested in exploring the essence of Japanese beauty in both his writing, and other artistic forms.

Format: Paperback
Really great plot which is thought provoking. I almost forgot about the Japan's nuclear disaster. With a plot that is sensible, characters that are well developed and with points and thoughts that everyone must brood over, the book is really irresistible .

Only regret is, the book is 58 pages long only.

Tales of courage and valor have always touched the chord of my life. I am always on a hunt to look out for such reading materials and in my similar quest I encountered this book named "Horace by Larry Knipfing". Concrete and strong, this piece of work is a masterpiece in its own self. Horace struggles through the story only for the sake of human welfare. In an attempt of safeguarding the children of Fukushima from a severe nuclear reactor incident, Horace emerges as a heroic character and fights against the set norms and regulations of the government. Based in Japan, the author extraordinarily narrates the storyline which is expressed as an interview between Horace and Haruki Marukami, conducted years after the actual incident took place.
The excerpts taken from the own journal of Horace are extremely captivating and appealed to me the most. I was extremely impressed by the character of the protagonist, Horace. Smart, witty, funny, yet extremely serious and concerned about the state of people around him, Horace is a character which is inspirational in its own self. It attempts to reach an unattainable goal strikes new zeal of confidence and hope in the readers. A must read for everyone, inspirational!

Larry does a great job here. He knows the place, people and soul of japan and his knowledge makes the book more interesting. Shedding light on the consequences of not doing anything, Horace struggles and finally achieves success where an lax civil administration failed. The narration is cool, the style and the incidents are thought provoking and book is amazing to read. I got to a little about American Slavery days. Cool book.
