Read this hilarious memoir that details Thuresson's romp through four Japanese companies in his near-decade as an immigrant Tokyo salaryman. Find out what it’s like to be mentored by the wise office sake master and yellow-carded by the human resources department for having an “unrefreshing” desk, and discover the trap awaiting Americans on the Japanese driver’s license test course.
This fun, illustrated journey through Tokyo middle-class life is a street-level study of Japanese culture that world travelers, Japan tourists and lovers of office humor will guzzle down faster than a salaryman does his first beer after work.
