Something Strange Across the River, Paperback / softback (September 2013)
First published in 1937, is a book both modern and nostalgic. It shows a changing city, it's slums, backstreets, temples and shrines, a city filled with erudite establishments and brothels. It shows a man trying to justify his life, and a glimpse into the creative process and a gentle eulogy on things passing.
