Wonderful! I love the bridge and the book:)
I have never read him, will have to find something ranslated into English! (I don't think he was translated into Polish)

I did not know him.
I think to put a sculpture of a book is a very pretty way to pay a tribute to a writer.
But, poor man, he was young when he died...

Is he the one who wrote Ningen Shikkaku? I didn't know he lived in Funabashi. Wow.
