about this item

A disabled foreigner in Japan, a society historically hostile to difference, Fries takes a journey of self-discovery, visiting gardens, experiencing Noh and butoh, and meeting artists and scholars. He begins with floating: genkan, fortune, barrier free, foreign affairs, nomo no aware, physical facts, a mountain of skulls and candlelit graves, an infected throat and a healing tree, and borrowing the hills. An interlude on away contrasts before and after. Then he looks at the world from the perspectives of survivals, a pair of one-winged birds, history being created or what the leech child says, rare and uncommon beings, bubbling water, my Japan, before and after, positive effects, and new stories in an ancient land.
