Barry Lancet will give a talk on writing, publishing and his new
thriller, Japantown (Simon & Schuster). His first novel, Japantown is
about an American antique dealer and private investigator who uses his
knowledge of Japanese culture to unravel a shocking murder in San
Francisco’s Japanown, with a single Japanese character printed on a
slip of paper, drenched in blood.
Lancet, having spent more than two decades in Japan with the majority of it at one of the nation’s largest publishers, Lancet has had access to many inner circles in cultural, business and traditional fields most outsiders are never granted. He speaks with a unique perspective on this country. For more information, please visit
After our time with Lancet, Kyoto Journal will be throwing a pot-luck party for contributors, friends and future-friends of the Journal. All are welcome.
Thank you John!
