Marie sent me this characteristically droll and precious book of fragile Japanese ephemera. Inside a delicate wrapping which looks like a catechism or a primer, is a comic book for which Marie has supplied helpful translations.
Ah, yes, the old culprit Incontinent Nostalgia, a failure of the sphincter which controls the memory bladder. In four short panels Marie has delineated the symptoms and probable cause of the spiritual crisis of our age. Her next book presumably deals with the cure. Thank you, Marie....
