Get It In America and Japan

Popular and prolific Japan-based expat blogger, writer, and novelist Grey, Grizzled, and Gaijin is out with his second fiction short story. Another unique, character-driven work focusing on life purpose, meaning, and the state of the modern human condition.

Carl Crapper is a once long ago rich and handsome young man who now spends his days at the town’s street poop scooper. One day he prays to the goddess of good fortune. The goddess, Sapporo, appears in human form, and Carl is in love. She tells him to take the third thing that he touches and journey to a place called La Salle De Bains.

Carl’s bad luck continues as he finds himself soon bound to an injured little chicken, but the goddess reminds him, “Everything in life is a trade.” and soon Carl is off to find his true life purpose, destiny, and, perhaps, even love.

The first in a new series of light and thought-provoking allegorical tales of personal growth and adventure. This opening story is a perfect read for anyone with dreams of being more in life.
