9789381626399: Stupid Guy Goes to India

Literary Nonfiction. Autobiography. Asian & Asian American Studies. Graphic Novel. Translated from the Japanese by Kumar Sivasubramanian. In 2004, having never before left Japan, 56-year-old manga author Yukichi Yamamatsu travelled to India, armed with little money, less English, no sigmoid colon, and absolutely no idea of what to expect. He did, however, bring with him his formidable art skills, a missionary zeal for spreading Japanese comics culture, and a keen pair of eyes—through which we are treated to a hilarious, brutally honest look at India as it presents itself to the foreign visitor. This is the true story of Yukichi's adventures—playing marbles, searching for bathrooms, betting on horses, visiting a brothel—and his madcap mission to sell Hindi translations of samurai manga on the mean streets of the nation's capital.

About the Author:

Yukichi Yamamatsu was born in Tottori Prefecture, Japan, in 1948. After leaving junior high school, he moved through a variety of jobs in quick succession before selling his first manga manuscript to an Osaka publisher at the age of 16. He has been an acclaimed mangaka for over four decades. He has been a frequent visitor to India since 2004. In addition to the full-length Japanese works Stupid Guy Goes to India and Stupid Guy Goes Back to India—now translated into English by Kuman Sivasubramanian and published by Blaft Publications—, he has published several translations and short original comics in Hindi and Bengali through his Indian publishing house, Ganga Yamato Company.

Book Description Tranquebar Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Stupid Guy Goes to India, Yukichi Yamamatsu, Sivasubramanian Kumar, Yukichi Yamamatsu is a 56-year-old Japanese man who travels to India. He is on a mission to sell his manga comics in India, a country where they are yet to gain popularity. As he attempts to navigate his way as a stranger in a strange land, hilarity ensues. He lands at the Delhi airport, armed with just a little money, a mission to accomplish, and zero interest in sight-seeing. From the minute he arrives in India, he is swept away in a hurricane of new, often daunting sights and sounds. Even the tiniest and most common of tasks seem to take enormous amounts of effort. From the spicy cuisine and the persistent beggars to the filthy toilets, Yamamatsu is left quite overwhelmed by it all. His comic-selling mission is initially overshadowed by the need to accomplish seemingly simple tasks like looking for a place to live, and escaping from the clutches of all manner fraudulent people, including landlords, cops, auto drivers, shoe sellers, and street vendors. As he slowly recovers from the culture shock that he was highly unprepared for, he gets back on track to focus on his original mission. His problems seem never-ending as he struggles to find a translator for his books, deal with a printing press, and find a vendor for the printed comics. Stupid Guy Goes To India has been written in Japanese, Yamamatsu's native language. It has been written in keeping with the traditional format of Manga comics, i.e., it needs to be read in a back to front, right to left manner. It was first published in 2008. This particular edition is the English translation by Kumar Sivasubramanian. It was published in 2012. Bookseller Inventory # B9789381626399
