The Scarlet Gang of Asakusa

The Scarlet Gang of Asakusa - Alisa Freedman, Yasunari Kawabata This book was a bit heavy handed for me. I enjoy Kawabata's later works that are much more subtle. I was looking for more of a "novel", but instead this book amounts to a laundry list of the things young people did in Asakusa to get by.
