Hear an interview with author and translator Zack Davisson, about his two new translation titles with Tuttle Publishing: Strange Japanese Yokai and A History of Japan in Manga

"This is a niche title that will entice browsers despite its relatively obscure subject matter.…Whether disgusting (a whole chapter is dedicated to pee- and poop-obsessed beings) or inexplicable (a nuppori-bozu has an eyeball in its butt), this eye-catching offering effectively introduces important figures inherent in Japanese culture." --Booklist

"If you have any interest in Japanese yokai or Japanese culture in general, this compendium of yokai is a must-have." --DC Palter reviews Murakami & Davisson's Strange Japanese Yokai
