Buying Options

University lecturer and beard researcher Gilbert Silvester is in shock. Last night, he dreamt that his wife was cheating on him. So, in an absurd knee-jerk reaction, he leaves her, boards the first possible plane and flies off to Japan to get some distance. There, he happens upon the classical poet Basho's travelogues and suddenly he has a goal: like the ancient wandering monks, he too wants to see the moon over the pine islands. But before he can even set off, he encounters the student Yosa, who is on the road with a very different type of travel reading: the Complete Manual of Suicide.
