While visiting Japan, animation writer Chris Robinson gets lost. As he
drifts through Tokyo, Hiroshima and Kyoto he happens upon a number of
mysterious figures including Bob Dylan, Haruki Murakami, Sumo wrestlers,
Big Bird and, by good chance, many famous Japanese animators – living
and dead. Each of these characters takes Robinson into a deep, dark,
mysterious world of Japanese animation that doesn't include Godzilla,
Akira, Anime, Manga or Hasao Miyazaki.


Chris Robinson is a Canadian writer, journalist and biographer. His
writing has been translated into many languages.
Robinson's animation books include: Estonian Animation: Between Genius
and Utter Illiteracy
(2006), Unsung Heroes of Animation (2005),  The
Animation Pimp
(2007), Canadian Animation: Looking for a Place to Happen
(2008), and Ballad of A Thin Man: In Search of Ryan Larkin (2008).
Robinson lives in Ottawa with his wife Kelly and their sons Jarvis and
Harrison. His dog is Molly.
