"A rare glimpse of the structure and nature of Tokyo's underlying psyche." Midwest Book Review
Award-winning novelist Michael Pronko examines Tokyo as a place, a culture, and a series of intense experiences. Tokyo's Mystery Deepens digs into the enigmatic sides of Tokyo with humor, delicacy, and enchantment. A transplanted American from the Midwest, Pronko's observations and experiences open up the many, miniscule doors into Tokyo life.
More than just a setting for novels and films, Tokyo is a lively, interactive space that constantly pops up questions: How do you sweat politely in Tokyo's sweltering summers? How do you glance sideways on crowded trains? How do homeowners transform a sliver of space into an impeccable garden? The answers are not what one might expect.
From the smooth flow of crowds to the rhythms of housewives pounding their futons, in this third memoir, Tokyo comes alive with its mysteries intact and deeper than ever.
