I recently reskimmed this so I could enjoy the incredible Natsume Shimada section that runs from page 381 to 394. His conversation with Harry ranged from the hilarity of "Rovely rady" to the beauty of this passage:

"In former times, in Japan, very simple things make men happy. Moonright on fish pond at certain moment. Cricket singing in bamboo grove. Very small things bring very great feering."

I also liked the sections where Rabbit played basketball with young guys in the black neighborhood close to his Florida condo.
