Chris Johnson’s new novel coming soon: Kobe Blue



From the Bubble era to the Kobe earthquake and beyond, Kobe Blue takes an uncompromising look at the inner turmoil behind the stoic face of Japan.  Based on two decades of experience in Japan, the 90,000-word novel explores the fragile soul of a nation where convenience overtakes tradition, consumerism replaces religion, and banality trumps morality.
