Book Idea #2

It's much more fun to come up with ideas for books than to actually write them (which is hell and taxing on the mind/body);after my next [C Gluck-inspired] collaboration project on the various representations of Edo in modern Japan, I think I would like to write a history of the prostitute-as-enlightened-or-enlightening-being (& vice versa) motif/theme in E Asian culture, from the courtesan-bodhisattva Vasumitra in the 華厳経 sutra to present... writing all these books is definitely going to require at least a decade-long sabbatical....
