Back of the House: Hitting the Stands

Tomorrow–or today in Japan, where it’s akegata, sun peeping before dawn–Back of the House appears in a 4000 word excerpt in Boston magazine.  A taste of the book.

Speaking of tastes, the eki-ben of grilled pork belly–though the box showed unagi–with two cold ones in view of Fuji-san: Lovely!  And then to arrive at The Kayotei for hot springs followed by a long kaiseki dinner of mountain vegetables, buri, and Noto beef?  Oh, my goodness.  This kitchen is the best I’ve enjoyed in Japan.

In-between we’re talking naps and a short Japanese novel about a despairing man.

Get that man into the hot springs!
