Regular price $38.50 Sale

A young man arrives to teach English in Japan under the JET programme, but what has he got himself into? Jetlagged and dazed, he is swept up into a mystifying world. As he tries to make sense of it, he encounters an astonishing cast of characters - young women with clothing fetishes, middle-aged women who cook him meals in exchange for English conversation, a bizarre elderly couple who take him on nerve-wracking expeditions, other foreigners behaving badly, fellow teachers with strange habits - and his students, whom he must somehow instruct, despite a total lack of teaching experience. Along the way he engages in an ever more desperate quest to find a girlfriend - but things don't always work out the way he hopes. We absolutely guarantee you will love this warm, funny, wonderful story of adventure, education, home appliances, octopuses, and how not to choose a girlfriend. This 2008 Awa Press Paperback is in Mint condition.
