Fear and Trembling, Paperback


Amelie, a well-intentioned and eager young westerner, goes to Japan to spend a year working at the Yumimoto Corporation.

Returning to the land where she was born is the fulfilment of a dream for Amelie, but working there turns into a comic nightmare of terror and self-abasement.

Disturbing, hilarious and totally convincing Fear and Trembling displays an elegant and shrewd understanding of the intricate ways Japanese relationships are made and spoiled.
