Haiku Guy

Authored by David G. Lanoue
Edition: Second Print Edition

"Haiku Guy" begins a quintet of connected, short, haiku-pappered novels wherein a fictionalized Issa ("Cup-of-Tea") teaches the art of haiku to the young provincial poet, Buck-Teeth.

In the course of his training, Buck-Teeth travels to Old Edo and contemporary New Orleans, falls in and out of love, considers the many schools of haiku, and learns what it is to be a poet.
