Honshu Survivors Get the American Touch: Shibaraku Published by Outskirts Press

Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated autobiography and personal Memoir book from Mariposa, CA, author Lucille Apcar.

Mariposa, CA, September 27, 2011 --( Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Shibaraku: Memories of Japan 1926-1946 by Lucille Apcar. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the autobiography and personal memoir category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

Early in the month of September, 1945, a small band of American soldiers on a reconnaissance mission through the central mountain region of Honshu, main island of Japan, arrived in Karuizawa. How they happened upon this tiny remote village remains a mystery, except as it turned out, Karuizawa offered the only habitable accommodation for miles in any direction.

By the time of the cessation of hostilities, due to unrelenting bombing attacks, almost every close-by city and town stood in pathetic ruins. Here they found a motley colony of ragged, half-starved westerners from almost every type of background, thrown together, huddled in drafty, uncomfortable shelters away from cities now ravaged by war. Priests, nuns, diplomats, displaced businessmen, stranded sailors, Jewish refugees, White Russians, Europeans and Middle Easterners, including of course, the author’s own family, one of the few Armenians finding themselves caught in Japan at the commencement of hostilities of World War II. The informal, easy-going, friendly manner of the Americans soon captivated everyone. Thus the occupation of a defeated nation commenced, and for the author’s family and her, at least, changed their lives forever.

159 pages in length, Shibaraku: Memories of Japan 1926-1946 is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the autobiography and personal memoir category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Shibaraku meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $18.95.

Additionally, Shibaraku can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at
