Book Publisher. In Tokyo Girl, Frank turns a holiday in
Tokyo into an open-ended stay when he lands a
lucrative gig in a jazz bar, with a sideline providing
piano lessons. But the owner of the bar turns out to a
senior member of the Japanese Mafia. When Frank is
befriended by an attractive woman who has a score to
settle with his new boss, Frank is suddenly way over his
head in the Japanese underworld. By the time the risks
outweigh the benefits, Frank finds himself -- literally --
about to "swim with the fishes."
Kirkus Reviews said, "this little prose poem is as pellucid and finely
wrought as a haiku."
