The author visited his home school, Edogawa City Ninoe No. 2 Elementary School in Tokyo, and taught "creation." He "taught children how to write an autobiographical novel" making them get their own no-good part out on their table. It is natural that there is a concave part, and there is no need to adjust it right away. Living while hiding it is more "troublesome." In honor of the children who wrote it out, the author added the title sentence in the book. From essays, "There's A Night That I Want To Cling To Novels."
