Set in nineteenth-century Tokyo and twentieth-century Boston, 'Pure innovations' tells of the fantastic adventures of Hiroshi — prankster, forger, authenticator, and artist. The son of a eastern courtesan and an American naval officer, Hiroshi by no means feels at domestic in his local Japan. Torn through his combined history, he's continually pressured to reinvent himself, occasionally with disastrous effects. In its vividly special game of the adventures of its enterprising, tortured hero, 'Pure innovations' is a narrative of varied types of estrangement: from mom and dad; from one's fatherland; even from one's most sensible self-interests.
