    There is a documentary on Netflix called Born Into This which is pretty good. I have not read anything of his, ever. I don't know why. Please help.

    In watching the documentary, I have learned that he is a charismatic and funny storyteller, and also that I want to squeeze the enormous ping pong ball sized blackheads on his nose.

    The documentary interviews this old Italian guy, Dom Muto, who was in the book as "Tom Moto." This guy was a little irritated because he didn't want to be seen as Japanese :D
