Author Brinkley-Rogers tells the ale of his time in Japan while serving in the US Navy.
onestly, it seems like the author just anted to relive some old memories ... but that does n't lways translate well to book form.
Neither the author nor Yukiko completely fill the trope or the tropes associated with it.
But Yukiko is smart, edgy, encourages the uthor to use his alents to write.
But I ca n't help but wonder if the write ha more in love with the premise and the memory rather than the actual person.
