Japan: In the Land of the Broken-Hearted by Michael Shapiro

Japan is the stories of six foreigners—one of them, the 19th century writer, Lafcadio Hearn—who fall in and out of love with Japan. Japan uses these stories to examine the struggle between Japan and those who should hope not only to understand her, but to be accepted.

"Chronicles the perplexities and frustrations of...adjusting to life in a homogeneous society that takes pride in its uniqueness." (The New York Times)
