Road Through Miyama

Leila Philip, Author Vintage Books USA $12 (264p) ISBN 978-0-679-72501-5
A Princeton instructor tells of the two years she spent apprenticed to a potter in the traditional, ritualistic Japanese town of Miyama. ``Although the technical descriptions of the potter's craft may cause readers' attention to wander,'' Philip's prose is generally ``crisp'' and she creates an ``affectionate appreciation'' of a singular society, remarked PW .
