Japanese Chronicle of Nicolas Bouvier.


The Japanese Chronicles

The work of the Swiss writer-traveler, Nicolas Bouvier (1929-1998), paints the historical and moral portrait of a society on the eve of great economic growth. The narrative is enriched with delicately carved impressions collected in notebooks during his successive trips. A vision, knowledge, writing. A pleasure. A classic, an essential to read and read again. 

Editions Payot, 1989.
