商品の説明

内容紹介

In a stunning memoir-cum-travelogue Peter Carey charts this journey, inspired by Charley's passion for Japanese Manga and anime, and explores his own resulting re-evaluation of Japan. Although graphically violent and disturbing, the two mediums are both inherently concerned with Japan's rich history and heritage, and hold a huge popular appeal that crosses the generations. Led by their adolescent guide Takashi, an uncanny mix of generosity and derision, father and son look for the hidden puzzles and meanings, searching, often with comic results, for a greater understanding of these art forms, and for what they come to refer to as their own 'real Japan'. From Manhattan to Tokyo, Commodore Perry to Godzilla, kabuki theatre to the post-war robot craze, Wrong about Japan is a fascinatingly personal, witty and moving exploration of two very different cultures.

レビュー

"'The mysteries of Japan and father-son relationships prove to be rich subjects, especially for a writer at the peak of his powers, and they make for an entertaining and uplifting book.' Sunday Times 'Fast-paced, readable and highly entertaining.' Sunday Express"

5つ星のうち 5.0 Fathers and Sons 2008/3/11
投稿者 H. F. Corbin - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
If you are looking for the definitive take on Japanese manga and anime, you probably will not find it in Peter Carey's WRONG ABOUT JAPAN. If, however, you want to read a loving account of a father's vacation with his shy twelve-year-old son that takes them to Japan for an experience that the young lad will never forget, then you will be enthralled, as I was, with the interaction between father and son.

Young Charley Carey, much taken with Japanese comics, tells his novelist dad: "When I grow up I'm going to live in Tokyo." Peter Carey thus arranges a trip for them to Japan, promising his son that they will try to avoid the touristy temples, tea ceremony and Kabuki, instead seeing what his son calls "the real Japan."

Mr. Carey of course has many misconceptions of the Japanese as they of him. What is so wonderful and entertaining about the Carey adventures is that the young people usually get things right. Charley has a new friend Talashi whom he has met on the internet back in New York. These two young people are light-years of the adults in this often amusing clash of cultures. Things get a little dicey-- at least for the father-- when Charley and he encounter their first transexual otaku--one simplistic definition of an otaku is a person so obsessed with something to the point that he or she has few personal relationships-- and Carey wants to be sure that his son isn't freaking out.

"It's okay," he [Charley] said. "I get it."
"Are you cool?"
"Dad, we live in the West Village."

One of my favorite sections of this short book covers how Charley, after many breakfasts, lunches and dinners of fish, miso soup, seaweed, pickles, sushi, sour pickled plums, rice, etc. finally had had enough of being politically correct and convinced his dad to go with him to a Japanese Starbucks for a breakfast of American doughnuts. It reminded me of a Malaysian lunch I had once in Hong Kong-- after many days of eating only Chinese-- that was the worst meal I have ever eaten. That evening my friend and I made a beeline to an American-style restaurant where we gorged ourselves on pasta and tomato sauce, garlic bread and iced tea. The ugly American lives.

This book, even with its several illustrations, is quite short and probably would have been just as effective as a long essay in THE NEW YORKER magazine. In these crazy times don't we all need to hear more about the love of a father for his son? I would be totally surprised to learn that Mr. Carey is not a good dad. His affection for his young son seeps through on every page of WRONG ABOUT JAPAN.

5つ星のうち 3.0 A bit of a shallow look at Japan 2005/12/25
投稿者 Jimmy P - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I thought the concept was interesting and many of Mr. Carey's impressions were good but lacked any depth. Way too short to bring in any real analysis of anime, manga or Japan. He says he is searching for "real Japan" but everything in Japan is "real Japan." Not just temples, samauri swords and rock gardens but otaku, anime, Mister Doughnut and KFC are all a part of "real Japan." You can't separate real from affectation. He also spends an inordinate amount of time debating the meaning of otaku. Simply it is nerd or geek, no other meaning needed. Now if he wanted to be more fashionable he should have brought up the term "moe" which is a new word being used to describe anime lovers who want to indulge their fantasies about certain characters. All in all, I thought it was just a sort of bragging about all the cool Japanese directors and manga artists he could meet because of his status as an author. And also a way to get his son some celebrity exposure. If you are interested in Japan, read it.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Short and Bittersweet 2006/2/15
投稿者 Blue-Rat - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This book is short at less than 200 pages, but it's a quick-fire ride through Japan's animation industry and the culture shock of two Westerners arriving in Nippon. Carey is trying to find some theme he can see in Japan and its anime and manga, and he speaks to many Japanese about various cultural messages that might be hidden in such works. Unfortunately every Japanese he speaks to thinks his conclusions are wrong, and the author gets increasingly frustrated. There are no big revelations in this short text, but it is a brief enjoyable tour of Japan's pop-culture and its historical background. One to borrow, rather than buy.
