A big thank you to The Literary Review for their wonderful review of Tracy Franz's My Year of Dirt and Water: Journal of a Zen Monk's Wife in Japan. We are honored to have a book of ours reviewed by this great publication.
Abagail Belcastro of The Literary Review writes:
"Part memoir and part travel-log, Franz lovingly introduces readers to the intimate parts of Japanese culture and society, while using what she’s learning to look honestly at her own life. She is a warm, calm, and curious voice, transporting readers into Eastern culture and Japanese religion with a humble respect that allows the reader to pull back the curtain and truly appreciate Japanese customs with a new, un-westernized lens."
