Explicit, 5,104 words. Isumi, Ogata, random guest apperances.
'My family history is quite straightforward. Nothing tragic; quite the opposite. My father did well for himself. My mother is American. Put the two together and you end up with a blond son who has enough money to drive a sports car and play Go for a living.' Ogata reaches into the inner pocket of his jacket and takes out a packet of cigarettes. He taps one out and lights up, offering the package to Isumi as he does so. When Isumi declines, Ogata asks, 'What about you?'
'Much the same,' Isumi says. 'Except that my family isn't rich and my mother isn't American.'
