From popular Shukan ST columnist, international women’s magazine publisher, bestselling author, and award-winning entrepreneur Caroline Pover, comes the first in a unique series of books created especially for Japanese women.
Having lived in Japan since 1996, Pover is accustomed to being asked a wide range of questions about her life, her culture, her opinions, and her experiences. Committed to helping women live happy and fulfilling lives, the “Ask Caroline” series provides information, inspiration, comfort, encouragement, and entertainment while answering those questions you’ve always wanted to ask a foreign woman!
The first in the series answers questions posed by real Japanese women, on life, love, work, sex, marriage, and motherhood—all those things that matter to the women of today. Sometimes serious, sometimes hilarious; Pover also shares her personal experiences with readers—no topic is taboo for this British woman who has made Japan her home.
This completely bilingual series is appealing to Japanese women, irrespective of English ability, but helpfully contains some essential English phrases specifically for the woman of the world and not found in your English language textbooks. With tips on behaving in a globally sophisticated manner, and plenty of interesting topics for discussion between you and your girlfriends, this book is a wonderful companion for the spiritually adventurous Japanese woman, and a perfect resource for any language students looking for something just a little bit different!
