The Yen Passes Chen

07.31.07 | 1 Comment

Over at Hell in a Handbasket , James posted a link to an article about random people in Japan finding large packets of money in public restrooms and in their own mailboxes. Believe it or not, this is another case of life imitating art. In Gregory McDonald’s The Buck Passes Flynn (published in 1986), the same thing happens except on a larger scale. People all over the country start receiving suitcases of $1,000,000 cash. Just as in James’ link, the bills are genuine. McDonald is an enjoyable writer, so I won’t spoil the book by telling you who is behind it, but I’m definitely curious who is behind this mysterious outbreak of generosity in Japan. Anyone care to theorize?
