I have been a member of the New Orleans Haiku Society for about 2 1/2 years and I own NO haiku books (except Katrina-Ku - Storm Poems).
Shame on me.
So, I decided to correct this situation and get this book.
It's a back to the basics book, an English translation of several classical haikuist such as Issa, Buson, Basho and other guys.
I bought this book at the Faulkner House Bookstore, a very cute little indie bookstore, just behind the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter section of the city.
There have been recent ads in the local news media to support small businesses in New Orleans.
Even though my contribution is not so great (money-wise), I hope that this bookstore does survive.
(By the way, I have tried to read Faulkner's works and gave up. Our secret--Don't tell anyone!)
