Three Generations Of A Japanese Family
This book is about a family whose traditional home is by the Seto Inland Sea in Southern Japan. There is a saying that the best fish in Japan comes from here because, as is quoted in the book, the rapid flow of water in many places in the sea makes the fish especially firm and good.
These qualities seem to mirror the strength and resilience shown by the three generations of women of the Shirai family. 'Fish Of The Seto Inland Sea' presents a fascinating, unique inside view of a country of which we know little and a family portrait of great emotional depth and honesty, a world readers will not forget.
