Naomi-a "moga," or modern girl-defies Japanese tradition in dress, etiquette, and morality in this satirical tale of obsessive love set in 1920s Tokyo. As narrated by her husband, Joji, the story of Naomi reveals the enthusiasm and confusion with which most urban Japanese contended with the irresistible attractions of Western culture.
