Interesting, poignant novelization of Lafacadio Hearn's life - someone I've always found fascinating. However, it's a bit dated and has some rascist overtones at times...At one point Hearn embraces a black woman: "Madly he felt her muscles ripple responsively, and he sensed the primal odor of her, wafted from remote tribal haunts." Hearn was an expat most of his life and only when he was about to die did he obtain any real recognition. ( )
