内容説明

A collection of stories from the Japanese tabloid press covering a wide range of topics, from sports to sex, crime to politics, social issues to scandal. They illustrate the energetic and inquisitive nature of Japan's weeklies, which often cover stories that the mainstream press do not. The best stories from the last four years are published here: a quirky, lurid, irreverent and unique book that will be fascinating for people who are looking for real news of the country. As a picture of contemporary Japanese society, the book is sometimes shocking, always entertaining, and absolutely true. Each chapter is devoted to a single theme (business life, sexual deviance, violence etc.) and the book as a whole offers a vivid picture of an aspect of Japan that is never presented to the world outside...

内容説明

In Tabloid Tokyo 2, the authors once again plunge into the pages of Japan's amazing weekly magazines to find more great stories that the Japanese are reading with unabashed gusto. Picking articles from the most outrageous new developments in the sex industry to the most poignant social commentary, these media watchers, all long-term residents of the country, creatively translate and add the occasional, insightful commentary to put these "news" items into context. Tabloid Tokyo 2, like its predecessor, offers a unique chance to see an uncensored and unexpurgated view of the quirky corners of Japan rarely covered in the mainstream media. Here are the fads, the fancies, and the foibles of life in Japan, as raw and real as life itself. As a picture of contemporary Japanese society (or at least a large part of it), readers will once again find this a collection that is informative, sometimes shocking . . . but always entertaining. Of the many ways to engage the Japanese, and the brilliant and peculiar society they have built, most involve reading long, long books with many, many footnotes. But the best way - the fastest, the most amusing, the most memorable - is through Tabloid Tokyo and its new sequel Tabloid Tokyo 2. Stephen Hunter, author of The 47th Samurai, latest of the Bob Lee Swagger novels [A] zippy collection. . . .Theres a refreshing lack of pandering, with much of the material presented in a straight-faced fashion that heightens its absurdity.
