Memoirs of a Douchebag
Huge in Japan
Memoirs of a Douchebag chronicles the adventures of John Box as he spends a year traveling around Japan, teaching English, and discovering himself, nightly. Through this life-changing journey, John comes to such revelations as: he hates working, and kids, and food that makes liver spots drenched in mucous seem like crème brulee. Further, through this inter-cultural experience, John learns some important life-lessons like how different Japanese are from Americans...and how similar. Fucking mind-blowing shit. Plus, he'll feel you up!
Fake Praise for Memoirs of a Douchebag:
"Not since Steinbeck has an author painted the American spirit as well as John Box has. This is a man who grabs life by the pigtails and fucks it in the ass" - John Box
"Transcendent...a whiff of paradise...and a hint of urine" - The Washington Post Book World
"I laughed so hard I beat my wife!" - Ike Turner
"Not so bad, really. I think it only took like 15 trips to crapper and it was over" - Oprah
"This book is a gift to the soul" - Hector the Bootie Inspector, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch
"Not only does John Box have obnoxiously gorgeous eyes, he's also got a tremendous body and is a terror on the basketball court" - Junichiro Koizumi, Japanese Prime Minister
"Fans of Tuesdays with Morrie will be delighted with this novel. Or they might not like it all. To be honest, they're a tough group to get a read on." - The Minneapolis Star and Tribune
"I can't even get my friends to read this pile of muck shit." - John Box
"No romantic novel ever written in America...is one half so beautiful as My Antonia" - The New York Times Book Review

WARNING: This book contains juvenile humor for adults. But if you've read this far, you probably already knew that. I apologize for shouting at you.
Note on Pricing in the US: This paperback costs $13.96 not because it's some marketing bullshit where I assume everyone out there is a complete moron who sees $13.96 and thinks $13 instead of $14, but because 1396 is the year that John of Gaunt married his longtime mistress, Katherine Swynford. Quite a fucking year in history.
Note on Pricing in Great Britain: This paperback costs £9.95 not because it's some marketing bullshit where I assume everyone out there is a complete moron who sees £9.95 and thinks £9 instead of £10, but because 995 is the year that the rule of Fujiwara Michinaga brought Japan to a literary and artistic golden age. Much like 2007, quite a fucking year in history.
Note on Pricing in Continental Europe: This paperback costs €11.98 not because it's some marketing bullshit where I assume everyone out there is a complete moron who sees €11.98 and thinks €11 instead of €12, but because 1198 is the year that Otto IV became emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. He then ruled for 14 years. 14 fucking years. Incredible!
