Metropolis, "Japan's #1 English Magazine," recently reviewed both The Haiku Apprentice: Memoirs of Writing Poetry in Japan by Abigail Friedman and The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film by Tom Mes and Jasper Sharp.
Hillel Wright reviews The Haiku Apprentice:
"The Haiku Apprentice gives the reader an original, thoughtful and personal glimpse of one expat’s productive encounter with Japan."
Kevin McGue reviews The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film:
"Five years ago, Donald Richie’s A Hundred Years of Japanese Film seemed destined to be the definitive resource on the topic for years to come. We now have The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film, which serves as the perfect companion piece."
