“Mr. Know All” is a story about culture, manners, outward appearances, values and – most importantly – prejudice. Prejudice exists because it is the human nature to stereotype people we meet based on race or how they look before getting to know them. The moral of the story can be summed up by the English proverb: “You should not judge a book by its cover”, since appearances may be deceiving.
The story takes place on an ocean Liner from San Francisco (the USA) to Yokohama, Japan during the 1920's, after WWI.
