About this book
This stunning memoir-cum-travelogue from twice Booker winning author Peter Carey re-evaluates Japan through its attempts to understand the violent and disturbing cartoons which are so inherently concerned with Japan's rich and historic heritage.
In 2002, twice Booker-winning author Peter Carey travelled to Japan, accompanied by his twelve-year old son Charley, on a special kind of pilgrimage. In this memoir-cum-travelogue he charts this journey, inspired by Charley's passion for Japanese Manga and anime, and explores his own resulting re-evaluation of Japan.
