If this isn’t the best men’s clothing invention I’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is: a business-safe sportcoat that looks like your standard-issue black suit, but is actually made of unlined linen so the wearer doesn’t have to roast in the wilting summertime heat!
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
