Tosh Talks: Interview with Kiichiro Yanashita
Tosh Talks. Tosh interviews Kiichiro Yanashita, a translator, film critic, and a man of great taste. Kiichiro translated William S. Burrough's "Soft Machine," John Water's "Shock Value," JG Ballard's "Crash" as well as countless other great titles into Japanese. To go to Tokyo and not to meet Mr. Yanashita, is for sure a sign of failure. Nevertheless I have spent countless hours with Kiichiro to various bars, shops, and god knows what else in Tokyo. Here we talk books, culture, the issue of translation, cinema, true crime and other fun stuff.
