“With great skill and intelligence…Gai-Jin is just the ticket. It has it all: murders, battles, rapes, earthquakes, sword fights, insanely convoluted political intrigues, and innumerable accounts of ‘pillowing’ with beautiful women.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“A grand historical perspective that makes us feel we’re understanding how today’s Japan came into being…absorbing…full of rich characters and complicated action.” —New York Times

“Engrossing…entertaining…the broad portrait is accurate and as colorful as an ancient Kabuki play.”—People

"Breathtaking....worth every word, every ounce, every penny."—Associated Press
