English book search 2008/5/1 00:36
Hi,
I'm trying to find a book by Colin Joyce. I have a copy in Japanese but can't read it yet as I'm new to the language. Does anyone know if it's available in English or can anyone give a good translation so I can check the internet. It's Japanese title is:「ニッポン社会」入門♂p国人記者の抱腹レポート I think!!
Really appreciate if anyone can help.

many thanks

You could try at Tower Records in Shibuya. They have lots of English books there.

well, an easy place to start is Amazon.com's japanese web page, which displays in English as well. A search for Colin Joyce comes up with your Japanese title but no English entries.
Not that every book in the world is at amazon.com but if not, it's gotta be pretty darn hard to find.

Just to add 2008/5/2 10:18
According to amazon.co.jp's listing, there seems to be no English version of this book published. Also according to a reader's review late last year (regarding the Japanese book), the manuscript was originally written in English - the author is British - but only the Japanese translation made it to a column in Newsweek Japan edition, and later edited and compiled for publication.

Hmm,
I wondered if it might only be a japanese print book. Have to brush up my reading skills, I guess!
Will keep looking at post if i find it.
Thanks all for the help.

If you are still looking for it, the English title of this book is "How to Japan - A Tokyo Correspondenet's Take". You can get it at Kinokuniya. I got mine from Kinokuniya in Singapore.
