Mr. Tambourine Man 437

Mr. Tambourine Man

This week’s Mr. Tambourine Man is all about Japanese novelist Soseki Natsume. While on a walk near Waseda University one day, Kiiyan encountered a small stone monument dedicated to Soseki (he tweeted the picture a few weeks ago), and that was his inspiration for this show. He’s apparently a big fan of Soseki’s, and shared a rather amusing tidbit about Soseki’s wife. In case you don’t know, one of Soseki’s best known novels is I am a Cat. Well … ironically, it turns out Soseki’s wife hated cats.
