Pictures from the Water Trade

(1985)
A novel by

 
 
"Water trade" is the Japanese term for nightclubs, bars, brothels and so on. Autobiography/travel/novel/cultural history - this is a cross-category book. "Morley combines immediacy with detachment by projecting his own experiences onto a young man called Boon. He alternates brilliantly entertaining accounts of Boon's adventures with interpretative passages." These are often to do with the language and calligraphy.
