Product Details


“[Booth] achieved an extraordinary understanding of life as it is lived by ordinary Japanese….Frequently brilliant in his insights.”—F.G. Notehelfer, The New York Times Book Review

“Alan Booth was not only the best travel writer on Japan, but one of the best travel writers in the English language. Looking for the Lost is a superb exercise in describing Japan from the point of view of an outsider with the knowledge of an insider.”—Ian Buruma, author of The Wages of Guilt

“Booth had a horror of pretension….[He] never fails to produce the whimsical anecdotes that keep the whole account down-to-earth.”—Elizabeth ward, Washington Post Book World
