• Kure, Hiroshima


Following your Oct. 27 article, “Novelist, essayist Morio Kita dies at 84,” my heartfelt condolences go to his family.

I enjoyed Kita’s writing over the years. The first book I read of his was the little known “The Adventures of Kupukupu the Seaman,” which inspired me to read the more famous “Dr. Manbo” series. “Funanori Kupukupu” continues to pull at my heart strings even now.

Thank you, Mr. Kita, for entertaining readers over the years and may your soul rest in peace.
