Intoxicating visions of loveliness; words that describe the quintessential example of feminine development-The Japanese Woman. Perhaps in these politically correct days one dare not utter such a thought, much less put it to paper but the author is not a timid writer. After living almost 13 years in that city of cities, Kyoto, Japan and teaching English one to one to the Japanese, predominantly women, this American, more hippy than ex-Marine, remains convinced that Japanese women are second to none.The author's non-fiction work, Ero-Samurai, should appeal to all those who have ever wondered why Japanese women cast such an exquisite spell over appreciative minds the world over. His material was drawn from keen observation, diligent hands on research and some 80 sources of important books written about Japan by foreigners, along with the classics of Japanese literature.Ero-Samurai is no dry academic book but a deeply personal, elegantly erotic attempt to explain what is unexplainable-Why Japanese women are so special.
David Duff was born in the United States but has spent the last twelve years living in Kyoto, Japan. He is an English teacher and avid lover of beer, darts, Jimi Hendrix, and Japanese women.
As stated above, this book takes on the rather lofty task of attempting to share some insight into why many of us westerners find Japanese women so special.
This is a subject that I'm sure many authors have thought about before but for whatever reason, none have tackled. As to why, eludes me. However that is precisely the reason this book is so special. Search elsewhere and you will find no paucity of dry, cold, and didactic literature that will safely examine subjects related to Japan.
Not here my friend. This is an intensely personal journey into territory that is somewhat off limits by normal literary standards. Calling it exclusively personal would be misleading because the author does an excellent job quoting sources of classical Japanese literature supporting his ideas.
Upon reading it, it dawned on me. This is an instant classic.
Out of all the books I've ever read on Japan, not one has had the honesty to come forth and say what this man has said here. And for that, I congratulate him.
You are one wild and crazy warrior Mr. Duff!
