Not just the proof cover this time - I finally received my finished copy of A Guide to Noh!
It's not the first book I've been involved in making...but for range of stories and sheer Japanese brilliant-ness, it's definitely the best. Not least because in it is the summary for Atsumori - a play about a young warrior-musician who dies rescuing his flute. I'm seeing it at the end of the month, and I'm actually going to be in it this summer. In America!
Now work starts on Book 2. Another stint working for the Japan Arts Council and lots of fiddly editing. Some people might sigh...but I can't wait!
