This is surprisingly GOOD!
Nothing today about the usual “gender, sexuality and the construction of imaginary others in Contemporary Japanese Visual Cultures“. Nothing even about car repair…
Just go seek out Shiori Experience – Jimi na Watashi to Hen na Oji-san by Yuko Osada, read it and smile. Ok, one might quibble at the fine points of representing a certain famous guitarist, but the story, plain and simple as it is has more than enough heart to excuse any lapses.
I will be waiting eagerly for the next chapter. Call up some background music on youtube and enjoy.
Go go Shiori!
