The Japan Journals reviewed in Lambda Book Report

Lambda Book Report, April/May 2005: "The Japan Journals: 1947-2004 offer a half-century of keen observation, both historical and deeply personal, that go beyond defining Japan or self, but reach further to intertwine the meanings of place, travel and identity... The primary reason for this review, however, is not to drag a reluctant Richie to an entirely different bookshelf, but simply to make The Japan Journals equally available for readers with an interest in gay Japan... What's important that, in closing this wonderful book, you'll want to travel. And there is that difference between tourist and traveler; the latter yearns to go further than the map provides."
