Big in Japan

- surely you've heard that phrase? It usually refers to moderately popular celebrities who have an enormous following in Japan. Well, would you like to hear the story of a moderately successful but obscure American novelist who realizes his work has gained quite a following in Japan?

Sure you do! Straight from the horse's mouth:
