From Library Staff

Follow a detached narrator as he wanders through Asakusa, a major entertainment district in Tokyo during its heyday in the ‘20s and ‘30s. Originally written as a newspaper serial, The Scarlet Gang is a beautiful and frenetic read about young female delinquents growing up in a modernized Japan.
