Arty little hardback, many Japanese woodblock prints throughout. I didn't care for the writing style, though.

Really good book! Whitney Otto perfectly captures what it feels like to be a twenty-something with a useless college degree and no idea what to do next. Each chapter allows a glimpse into the life of a different patron of the Youki Singe Tea Room in San Francisco, usually as they are at a crossroads of sorts. As the book unfolds you see how the characters all intertwined during this transitory, aimless time in their lives. Beautifully written.
