John MooreWith his easily readable and entertaining style, Hillsborough does a great job of elucidating the complex customs that ruled Edo Period life and politics. Since this is more a historical novel than a faithful biography, the author is free to put together lively dialogue and portray the characters from the point of view of an omniscient narrator. This goes a long way toward alleviating the typical dryness of a scholarly work of history.
