Description
When Jane Takagi-Little finally lands a job-producing a Japanese television show sponsored by BEEF-EX, an organization promoting the export of U.S. meats-she takes her crew on the road in search of all-American wives cooking all-American meat. Over the course of filming, though, Jane makes a few troubling discoveries about both. Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, in Japan, Akiko Ueno watches My American Wife! and diligently prepares Coca-Cola Roast and Panfried Prairie Oysters for her husband, John, (the ad-agency rep for the show's sponsor). As Akiko fills out his questionnaires, rating each show on Authenticity, Wholesomeness, and Deliciousness of Meat, certain ominous questions about her own life-and the fact that after each meal she has to go to the bathroom and throw up-begin to surface. A tale of love, global media, and the extraordinary events in the lives of two ordinary women, counterpointed by Sei Shonagon's vibrant commentary, this first novel by filmmaker Ruth L. Ozeki-as insightful and moving as the novels of Amy Tan, as original as Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. or John Irving-is a sparkling and original debut from a major new talent.

display_description As she films a 52-part series on wholesome American beef for Japanese television, director Jane Takagi-Little of New York realizes she is doing her viewers a disservice and sabotages the show. Combines exposure of unhealthy production of meat and a cross-cultural view of America. A novel accompanied by a reader's guide explores the strange things that happen in the love lives of two women--one a Japanese-American filmmaker from New York, the other a Japanese housewife--who are linked by a Japanese television show sponsored by an American meat exporter.
