Magda is thrilled to leave her globalization-protesting boyfriend in Toront o and head to Tokyo to teach English conversation...or so she thinks. Upon her arrival she is whisked off to save the life of a suicidal salaryman wit h the help of a strategic idiom. Magda has unwittingly joined the Anne of G rey Tokyo Emergency English Response Team, and she better brush up her voca bulary in a hurry, because the English emergencies keep coming. Suddenly ca ught up in the politics of English and pop culture in Japan, Magda soon rea lizes to expect the unexpected. She's now the student--and Japan definitely has a lot to teach. "From Orgasm Kabuki to troll girls in the pee trade, stackable Daruma apart ments to a mute monkey named Kagemusha, Janice Valerie Young has written an irreverent send-up of the warped world of English conversation schools (an d the zany international staff that fuel them) that is as imaginative and o ver-the-top as Tokyo itself. Strike up the chindonya, this girl can write!" --Leza Lowitz, author of Green Tea to Go.
