Show Notes

Matt engages today in conversation with Charles Shiro Inouye [Ee-No-Oo-Eh], Professor of Japanese Literature and Visual Culture at Tufts University, where he has served as both a department chair and dean of the colleges for undergraduate education. Charles is the author and editor of several important books in Japanese literature and culture. Last year, he published a poignant and compelling memoir titled Zion Earth Zen Sky in the Neal A. Maxwell Living Faith series. As Matt has his own book coming out soon in that series, he talks with Charles about Charles’s beautiful book and also the experience of writing a spiritual memoir – the challenges and rewards it presents and the ways one’s academic training both assists and impedes that endeavor.
