I have gathered thirty-six of my favorite haiku to date in this book, some that were written about my life in Japan, where I lived for several years, and some with a more indirect connection to Japan.

この本には、私がこれまでに創った俳句の中から、大好きな36句を集めました。私の数年間の日本での生活についての句と、いくつかは、いくぶん間接的な日本との関わりについて、詠んだ句です。

This is an excellent read. Neuman takes the reader through a cultural, historical and a personal journey through Japan. This is not the typical tourist's perspective of foreign country. Each haiku is based upon a true experience by Neuman. You feel the warmth of the furo, the crisp winter air in Tokyo, and how the author and his wife rise above the unsettling affects of the tsunami on his family. He makes me want to visit Japan. I didn't want the book to end.
