Spinifex Press, 2000 - Social Science - 175 pages
Marou Izumo and Claire Maree met in a bar in Tokyo. Separated by 17 years in age, by their cultural origins and by the reguirements of visas, they have managed to maintain their relationship through these vicissitudes. Autobiography, love story, cross cultural reflection, this book is all of these and more.
