I was a bit afraid about reading this book that I would not be intelligent enough to understand it, and also because I had never read anything like it before, but what I found were lots of little `bonsai` stories. Perfectly formed, and everything there, but in beautiful miniature style. Every word counts, and each story is a little gem, and every one a surprise as to how it would end. After reading it, in that half-life between waking and sleeping, I was haunted by spirits dancing to get their colourful cloaks back, pillows which tell the future, a couple giving their very last to give hospitality to strangers and being richly rewarded, and smiling at warriors who give up their battles as domesticity appeals more than glory.

In this beautiful pamphlet, Paul Griffiths gives us eleven stories drawn from noh, a highly stylized form of Japanese drama. Griffiths's adaptations are interspersed with John L. Trans's photographs of deserted Japanese shopping arcades. The result is a varied collection of dreamlike episodes in which past and present, living and dead mingle.
