Fleenor draws on his 40 years experience of living in Japan to create a story embued with factual information and subtle understanding of the pre-war and war era. As in earlier novels he has chosen Karuizawa and Asama as a backdrop but has widened the stage to include China, Europe, and the United States. American readers will enjoy the chapters that take place in Oregon and Northern Indiana near Lake Michigan. In Season for Leviathan the author adds unique color to events in Japan experienced by foreigners and Japanese who lived through the war. The Plot: Why is Erik Steffensen mentally disturbed? What events in his life in the autumn of 1941 led up to his predicament? The Japanese authorities will not allow him to leave Japan. They have limited, yet encouraged his odd activities...
