Turning Japanese by MariNaomi
2D Cloud will be publishing MariNaomi‘s autobiographical Turning Japanese in September 2015, but in the meantime, you can read the first eight chapters at their website. The book is described as
A graphic memoir about working in illegal hostess bars in San Jose and Tokyo, attempting to connect with a culture that had eluded Mari until early adulthood.
It’s interesting stuff, with a different view of Japanese culture than some will have seen.
