About the Book

One of Japan's most treasured novels—new to Penguin Classics

A hilarious tale about a young man's rebellion against "the system" in a country school, Natsume Soseki's
Botchan has enjoyed a timeless popularity in Japan. The setting is Japan's deep south, where the author himself spent some time teaching English in a boys' school. Into this conservative world, with its social proprieties and established pecking order, breezes Botchan, down from the big city and with scant respect for either his elders or his noisy young charges. The result is a light, funny, fast-paced novel.
