Short story that feels like a hung-over tale of a weeklong sex, alcohol, and food tour de force. It's weird, the plot wonders all over the place and you never really get a chance to get attached to any one character, yet the tales amount to a quick and entertaining read if somewhat random. This may be by design as this is the first part in a series and may only be meant to introduce the characters. The bulk of the story occurs in Japan, and it's evident the author loves that place, going to great lengths to describe the city, people, and food. Clearly this man must have only written when he was either hungry or horny, nothing wrong with that. Worth picking up.
