Dallas, Tex : Spring Publications, 1988
234 p.; 23 cm
This book examines the haunting, sad, and lovely depths of the Japanese soul by studying their idiosyncratic figures: terrible women who eat people, obscene escapes from the Oni monsters, brother-sister bonds, undersea dragon palaces, movements between "worlds". We learn why so few tales end in a "happily-ever-after" marriage, and why the female figure best represents the culture's ego and possible future.
