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."
