Summary :

Like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Botchan, a hilarious tale about a young man's rebellion against "the system" in a country school, is a classic. Among both young and old in Japan, it has enjoyed a timeless popularity, making it, in the words of Donald Keene, "probably the most widely read novel in modern Japan."
