Donald Richie's new book of travel writing, Travels in the East, was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle's Book Review on Sunday, January 20. In the extensive review, Reagan Upshaw writes:
"For more than 50 years now, Donald Richie has been Our Man in Japan. . . . Richie writes about Vietnam in 1996, Cambodia and Egypt in 2001, Yap in 2004, and a dozen other places. . . . [He] remains a consummate guide to a disappearing world."
