After H. G. Robert's 2006 USA book debut, LOVERS (Erotic Short Stories), Confessions of an Onnagata takes on a different genre... The book is a colorful collection of haiku and poetical interludes spiced with pearls of wisdom about gender roles, Japanese phrases and etiquettes. Also, as an additional twist to the content, the book's poetic themes are centered around the Onnagata, who is a cross-dressed male actor in the Japanese kabuki theatre. (Onna means woman and Gata(kata) means way of doing or form.) So, do you really think that seeing is believing? If yes, then think again... Onnagatas are the butterflies of life. Confessions of an Onnagata asks important questions about gender, love and acceptance in a world filled with denial and hate. For more info log onto: or or
