Reviews

  • A delightful anthology that traces the evolution of travel writing in Japan through diaries, stories, drama and poetry ... In this remarkable work of translation and scholarship, filled with wonderful vignettes of Japanese life and sensibility, McKinney introduces readers to the nation's rich and unique literary tradition

    P.D James, The Guardian
  • A marvel of absorbing, elegant scholarship . . . Travels With A Writing Brush is a beehive of a book, buzzing with superb commentary and annotations, and bound to last generations.

    Barry Hill, Australian Book Review
  • A fascinating adventure ... Resonates as much with today as with yesteryear, and even for readers unfamiliar with Japan... A beautiful work

    Japan Times
  • A fascinating compendium
