Book Review in Chopsticks NY

I'm so excited whenever something I write is published in a medium other than my blog.  This time it's a review of the re-released book You Gotta Have Wa by Robert Whiting.  The fine folks at Chopsticks NY were kind enough to give me this assignment because they know I'm a fan of baseball, Japan, and Japanese baseball.  It's a small blurb, but I'm pleased with it.

I feel restricted by word-count limits that editors must impose, so I'm going to provide a more personal review of the book here on shrinecastle in the next few days.  I'm sure y'all can't wait!

I loved your review. Made me want to read the book. Why didn't they give you a BYLINE, for cryin' out loud?!

Nice review. Looking forward to the long version.

Speaking of great books about Japanese culture, you should also review "Confucius Lives Next Door" by T.R. Reid.

Thanks for the comments, guys! Chopsticks NY doesn't give bylines for small stories like that, but it's cool.
