Book by Quennell Peter

Reseña del editor:

A Superficial Journey is the result of a year spent in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Peking. "A kind of travel film, a sequence in which image suggests image," it describes, in vivid Quennell's vivid prose, Kabuki actors, Tokyo's Joy Quarter, the tomb-ridden vistas of North China, and the political gossip of Peking in the 1930s.
