I’m thrilled to hear that the Japanese version of my book ‘Out of Silence’, translated by Noriko Ogawa, is to be reprinted only nine months after its first publication.
My editor in Tokyo, whose messages are always to be treasured, writes that ‘Your book had put up a very good fight in this serious economic situation of Japanese publishing world.’ Which makes the news of the reprint even more enjoyable.
Noriko Ogawa and I will be discussing life as a classical musician in Japan and the UK on Thursday 4 April from 6-8pm at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation in London. The Daiwa Foundation is dedicated to nurturing links between England and Japan. Our event is free to attend – though because space is limited, you have to register your name beforehand. Noriko and I will be interviewed by Robert Philip; there will be an opportunity for members of the audience to ask questions, and finally to meet us over a glass of wine.
