Donald Richie’s latest selection of commute essays explores all of the corners of Asia and a bit of past because it sweeps via Egypt, India, Bhutan, Mongolia, China, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Borneo, Thailand, Yap, and Japan. Richie is an observer and wanderer, reveling within the freedom not to be himself yet continuously conscious of his function as an intruder. just like his different works, there is still a feeling that those landscapes, those cultures, and those delights will quickly be no more.
Donald Richieis a movie critic, the major explorer of eastern tradition in English, and the writer of the acclaimed go back and forth diary/novel Inland Sea.
