9781934287316: A Guru Is Born

Having lost his job and his girlfriend, Kazuo becomes a member of a religious sect, after seeing the Guru heal an old woman in a wheelchair. He soon discovers the secrets of success in the sect are much the same as the business world, the power of suggestion playing a larger role than faith.

When the Guru unexpectedly dies, Kazuo is nominated to continue the sect as the new Guru.

Mr. Kitano lives and works in Tokyo.

Review:

“Kitano tells his tales simply and directly, avoiding flowery descriptions and clichéd melodrama, instead creating captivating stories that are subtle yet strongly visual."
-Mark Rifkin, This Week in New York
