Oh, this is so interesting! I bought Pachinko for the library collection I work for, but I haven’t read it. BUT right now I am also reading a historical book about Korea and Japan, and it’s great. It was written in the 50s and is not dispassionate at all!

When I was a kid, we had an old pachinko machine we played with — my mom’s father was stationed in Japan in the late 50s and they brought it back. Pachinko is really fun for a kid.
