Lafcadio Hearn's 13 books on Japan have been successfully published in America and Europe and have been widely discussed, yet misunderstood. Generations have discovered Hearn (Koizumi Yakumo) for themselves. This book is the first of its kind to set out to celebrate, explain and explore Hearn's Irish background, not only because of the influences this had on his view of life, but his preoccupation with ghosts, goblins and his literary genius. The author, Sean G. Ronan was former Irish Ambassador to Japan and the book will appeal to anyone wishing to enrich their understanding of Japan as well as an interest in Hearn.

Thank you for visiting Bobbis Bookstore and The Book Wizard !!
