    Free Library of Philadelphia

    1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
    • Thursday March 15th 2018, 7:30pm to 9:00pm
    “One of those rare historian-humanists who bridge East and West” (Wall Street Journal), Ian Buruma is the author of The Missionary and the Libertine; Murder in Amsterdam; Year Zero: A History of 1945; Theater of Cruelty: Art, Film, and the Shadows of War; and Their Promised Land, an account of his grandparents’ love and separation during the 20th century’s darkest hours. The winner of the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay, the Erasmus Prize, and the Shorenstein Journalism Award, he is the editor of The New York Review of Books. A Tokyo Romance is an unsparing account of Buruma’s journey into that city’s frenetic and surreal ’70s underground culture.
