Abstract

Excerpt:

"Brau continues to extend research in rakugo with this book. By writing it, she did Japan scholars and English-speaking rakugo fans an enormous favor. Thanks to Brau’s unique position as an insider in the rakugo world, readers are exposed to its realities and excitement. Her language flows beautifully as she tells her story, and she presents her subject in an instructive, yet warm and welcoming manner. She shows herself an accomplished hanashika.
