Nonfiction. In THE RAINBOW WORLD, Burton Watson, internationally respected translator and writer, charms us with his experiences as a student of East Asian culture and longtime resident of Japan. These essays, written over many years, reflect the changes that have taken place in postwar Japan and suggest both the pleasures and trials experienced by foreigners living there. Taken as a whole, this collection is a candid and warm picture of the Japanese people, presented with humor and lightness of touch.
