Review of “Using a Bucket to Pour Water on a Flood” (1985)


Miyazaki Hayao (writer).

Read in Starting Point.

This essay further develops the flood metaphor of “My Point of Origin” (1982). By the time I first read it, having experienced a flood five times higher in the 2000s, it seemed quaint, but the author’s warnings hold true.
