Botchan Cover

Botchan (ぼっちゃん) by Natsume Sōseki (夏目なつめ漱石そうせき)     1906

The most famous and widely read of Sōseki's works, this novel begins by describing Botchan's rash and reckless nature through anecdotes from his childhood and early schooling. The story then shifts into a hilarious account of his ill-fated first job, a teaching assignment far from Tokyo in "barbaric" small-town Shikoku.
