下妻物語 ヤンキーちゃんとロリータちゃん

下妻物語 ヤンキーちゃんとロリータちゃん - Novala Takemoto, 嶽本野ばら The tale of the unlikely friendship between a lolita and a yankee.My favorite Japanese book of all time. I read this while I was studying abroad in Japan, after I picked it up on a whim at a bookstore. In fact, I liked it so much that I brought it home the US even though I'd originally bought it to donate to the university library. It's laugh outloud funny in parts, and it sparked my love affair with Novala-san's writing. I just adore his writing style, and the way he makes use of the richness and versatility of the Japanese language.
