    1. It's difficult to rate this book. Shimao's prose is distinct and honest and even in the throes of a surrealistic reverie, he comes off as authentic. So it's too bad that there are only 112 pages of it in English. The rest of the book (78 pages) is padded with an introduction, notes, and 'interpretive comments.' I'd give the 'stories' (more like chapters from larger works) 5 stars, but absolutely none for the product. It's a frustrating tease.
