Whitebait & Tofu

“A whirlpool of paradoxes, poetics and treacheries,”. a phrase from Whitebait and Tofu, is not a bad tagline for the book itself. Certainly it’s a whirlpool. Take a thirty-something, 21st century Anglo American photographer and philosopher, who is truly lost in the heartland of the global future, which is somewhere on the west coast of the United States. Boy meets beautiful Japanese girl. Boy gets mixed up in the dangerous intrigues and rivalries between factions in the local Japanese community. Throw in some philosophy and culture (kabuki, Noh, ikebana, aikido, an Emperor cult) and dissertations about Japanese uniqueness, their capacity for inventiveness and their relationship to the western world. Mix with lubricious sex and eroticism. Add flavourings of photography, hard drinking, good food, and much more, to create this beautifully written and thrilling dish of Whitebait and Tofu. The title, by the way, comes from an old Japanese recipe…” - Anthony Crichton, Amazon
