商品の説明

著者について

Son of a Hong Kong WW2 refugee father and Scottish-Australian mother, Michael Guest was born in 1954 in the coal mining town of Lithgow, Australia. He lived, worked and studied in Sydney and the south coast of NSW, taking his PhD in modern literature (Samuel Beckett) at the University of Sydney. He moved to Japan in 1991 to teach English at business school in Nagoya, before accepting a position at Shizuoka University, where he would become a full Professor in media and cultural studies and a founding member of Japan's first national faculty and graduate school of informatics. He published many academic and media articles, some of which have appeared in The Australian newspaper, Australian Book Review, Australian Society, Journal of Beckett Studies, and Education about Asia. Michael recorded broadcasts as a freelance researcher and commentator on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Radio National and co-edited the book Essentially Oriental: R.H. Blyth Selection (Tokyo: Hokuseido Press, 1994), alongside Kuniyoshi Munakata, Leader of the Noh Shakespeare Company of Japan. He lectured at prominent international conferences in Australia, Japan, the United States, Germany, Thailand and Taiwan on literature, theory, culture and education, retiring from his professorship and relocating to Australia in 2006, where he worked as a university lecturer. --このテキストは、paperback版に関連付けられています。

レビュー

"Rarely is a reader granted such enlightened insights into the people and culture of Japan. Guest takes us into the Japanese psyche, exploring social mores, the underlying meanings of simple actions, and the historical and religious fabric that knits the people together. . . ."--Brian Armour, author of Future Crime

"He draws his tight literary portraits from his experiences living and tertiary teaching in Japan. I was enchanted to learn the micro-details of a culture of micro-details."--Gloria Lee McMillan, editor of Orbiting Ray Bradbury's Mars.

"Tatami Days is about an Australian gaijin (the author) who moves to Japan to take a teaching position with no particular plan to stay. It's an adventure, the kind we all relish. The story takes him all over Japan (Tokyo, Shizuoka, Nagoya, Kyoto) with which he provides detail how each of these places differ again educating me that Japan is of many different regional cultures, a place of diversity yet always girded by the overall culture of quiet civility, minimalism, and humility. That I am from America, this can only make me laugh at my own country, so profoundly opposite. He also juxtaposes history against his current experiences, making this book multi-layered and rich.

"The book permeates your psyche . . . . his calm, poetic, detailed writing style, always with a touch of light irony, full immersion. The book is, indeed, very Zen. It is an absolute must for anyone going to Japan. It will make for an excellent primer."--Virginia Arthur, author of Treed and Phat('s) Chance for Buddha in Houston
