When Gordy flees America and the War in Vietnam and takes a job as an English teacher in the Tokyo of the 1960s, he finds he gets a lot more than a mere hourly wage.



[NOTE: My novel, "An American Love Song in Survival Japanese" has recently been published on Amazon.com (and all other Amazons – JP, UK, etc.) as a Kindle eBook. I have also enrolled this this
novel in Kindle Select so that it is now available on Kindle Unlimited. In order to do this, however, I was required to delete all but the opening 10% of the text of the book on Booksie as a sample
with a link to its page on Amazon at the end of it. I also hope to have a paperback edition of it available on all Amazons in the next few weeks. I hope you will enjoy reading it even more on
Amazon than you have on Booksie. For one thing the formatting is much better on Kindle than it is on Booksie and if you have a Kindle reader of some sort, you can easily change the font size,
margins, etc. to you favorite settings and make it even easier for you to read



Also, please note that the cover for the Amazon version is quite different from the Booksie version. It has the title in large, gold script letters and a background color of bright green. I've
found this is much more legible and conspicuous in thumbnails, etc., than my wife's relief sculpture, “Together”. I am purposely leaving her cover on Booksie, however, since I think it is truly a
work of art. But even if you blow up the Booksie cover, it blurs way too much to appreciate the intricate detail in clay she puts into her work. If you are at all interested in this work, please
visit her Website “kimikoaso.com” (NOT “kimikoaso.WIXsite.com, which is her much older site) and view, not only this work, but many of her later works as well in much better detail and much larger
format. -- kw]
