This book is said to be the first of the the form _zuihitsu_ written in English, and though I think that may be debatable, the value of the debate is in close reading and with any luck, interesting discussion of all of Hahn's amazing books and any others we can find called _zuihitsu_ in someone's MFA thesis.
Whatever it is with respect to zuihitsu, it is extraordinary. It is beautiful, fascinating and brilliant prose poetry. I can't think of any reason to not love this book. Or not to write the author fan mail. The kind with a stamp. Noted and logged.
Anyway, if you love to read and like prose poetry that is lovely and lyrical and all that poems should be and also with a narrative thread that's perfectly easy to follow, you will love this book. Hmmmm. I can't think who else you might be. Who else would you be? Cheers! And Kimiko Hahn, thanks for writing this wonderful book. I'll write a more detailed review at some point...
