Re: More from the Fusty One (RLP)

And, having read Smilingly Excluded again, I will say I think it's a terrific piece of writing. The binary I remembered between Tokyo's intellectual provincialism and Richie's sexual exploits is really only hinted at in the final sentence:

"In 150 years, foreigners in Japan have produced important works of history, political science, anthropology and journalism, but no lasting work of literature. Perhaps Donald Richie shows us why."
