After Apocalypse (Cornell East Asia) (Paperback)
One of the most thought-provoking studies of modern theater in Japan].... David Goodman shows a broad range of literary sympathies and skills in his introductions, translations, and commentaries, which I find exemplary.... A real contribution to our understanding of postwar Japan, raising questions, political, moral, and spiritual, that all of us must learn to face as human beings, whatever our national or cultural origins. --Journal of Asian Studies
