You're no Dirk. I suggest you change it to something else.

I bought this book today. Flipped through it, looked pretty moody. I'm looking forward to reading it later tonight.

One of the best features of the book is although the writer is very knowledgeable about Japanese culture and some of the challenges of being a foreigner living there, but the book doesn't hit you over the head with exposition to make sure the reader understands. For instance, I don't think "gaijin" is defined in an unnatural or forced way but it's shown through the narrative what it means to be gaijin in Japanese culture to some extent. The information is wound into the narrative and doesn't presume the reader is a dummy and can't figure things out from it.

Okay, here is what we will do for people whose LCSs don't carry the book who are still interested in reviewing the book. Send me a PM with your address and I'll mail out my copy tomorrow. The first person will then send it to the second person and so on and so forth until it makes its way back to me. That way, we can still get some solid reviews from those otherwise unable to read this week's selection.

I actually have a copy of this, so I'm willing to do the same as BlueStreak for any UK based posters.
