Aram Pachyan’s blurb on Yūshō Takiguchi’s book


Yūshō Takiguchi is a writer who lives and creates in Tokyo. He was awarded with the most famous Ryūnosuke Akutagawa literary prize in Japan. While taking part at Fall residency at the International Writing Program in the Univeristy of Iowa, he became good friends with Aram Pachyan and talked much about art and literature, including Arshil Gorki and his life.
Recently Yūshō Takiguchi’s book has been published in Japan with Aram Pachyan’s blurb on the cover. The author has chosen Arshil Gorki’s picture “The painter and his mother” as a cover of his book. The book includes notes and impressions of the time spent at Iowa.
