I am super excited!!!
Kristine Ohkubo‘s latest book “Talking About Rakugo: The Japanese Art of Storytelling” has JUST been published!!!
I haven’t been thrilled this much for a while, and this is easily one of the highlights in my rather drab life.
I have REALLY been looking forward to this day for the following very good reasons:
- The author is a big rakugo fan, and this book is her expression of her love for this art. She is even a fellow member of the English Rakugo Association!
- I just found out that my master Kanariya Eiraku is the co-author of this book!!! (I just found this out myself… both Kristine and my master kept this a secret for a long time… cheeky them 😁)
- I am featured in this book along with my rakugo superstars!
I can confidently say that it is the most accessible yet comprehensive book on rakugo that is available in the English language!
I forgot to mention, but the book even features some rakugo scripts by my master Eiraku!
The author has just notified me that she had ordered a copy for me to thank me for being a part of this book!
But I am the one who needs to thank her 😊
