At a time when there weren't many foreigners in Japan, Ian Buruma moved to Tokyo to immerse himself in avant-garde theater and film.An unusually lucid writer, Buruma went on to a brilliant journalistic career, last year succeeding Robert Silvers as editor of The New York Review of Books, where he's been a longtime contributor.While occasionally lingering over movies only the most ardent cinephile would care about, Buruma paints a vivid portrait of his often mind-boggling encounters with the motley collection of artists, expats and eccentrics he befriended during his Tokyo years.Ian Buruma's "A Tokyo Romance" is published by Penguin.
