Read from September 09 to October 22, 2010

Right after Reading David Mitchell's latest, I wanted something Japanese, and that's what was around. A novel about Japanese POW experiences in Soviet captivity after WWII. Not a great novel so far, but very interesting subject matter with enough context to be useful to a novice reader of history. George Kennan just made an appearance. Today is August 9.
