The Devil Wears Prada meets Lost in Translation in this irresistible new novel from L. A. Woman author Cathy YardleyMeet Lisa Falloya, an aspiring half-Japanese, half-Italian American manga artist who follows her bliss by moving to Tokyo to draw the Japanese-style comics she's been reading for years. Leaving behind the comforts of a humdrum desk job and her workaholic fiancée, Lisa has everything planned---right down to a room with a nice Japanese family---but hasn't taken into account that being half-Asian and enthusiastic isn't going to cut it. Faced with an exacting boss and a conniving big fish manga author, Lisa risks her wedding, her friends, and her fears for a shot at making it big.
