When you search for The Kyoto Manon Amazon, there are 618 results, the first four of which are slip-on shoes. I can assure you that my book is not a shoe. For those of you that have emailed me about its availability, the paperback will be out in April and the Kindle/Nook later in the year. Also, any day you will be able to purchase the signed limited hardcover edition, which should cost you about as much as one month's rent or mortgage payment. Details here. Thank you.
