O Tomodachi (Friend)

 O Tomodachi is Dirk Jorgensen’s vibrant, detailed memoir of observing, experiencing, and absorbing a bygone culture.

As a work of history, O Tomodachi provides a perspective on postwar Japan that is both factual and accessible. As a memoir, it provides a wonderful sense of what it was like for a young American to go off to a foreign land, a place that had only recently been the enemy of the United States, and to open himself to new experiences and people. Jorgensen fell in love with Japan, and that love has lasted a lifetime.
