'Amazingly well researched, fabulously informative and an awful lot of fun. If you love Japanese culture or are just curious to know more I can't recommend this book highly enough' Jonathan Ross 'A nerd- and generalist-friendly look at how Japan shaped the post-World War II world, from toys to Trump . . . A non-native's savvy study of Japan's wide influence in ways both subtle and profound' Kirkus The Walkman. Karaoke. Pikachu. Pac-Man. Akira. Emoji. We've all fallen in love with one or another of Japan's pop-culture creations, from the techy to the wild to the super-kawaii. But as Japanese-media veteran Matt Alt proves in this brilliant investigation of Tokyo's pop-fantasy complex, we don't know the half of it. Japan's toys, gadgets, and fantasy worlds didn't merely entertain. They profoundly transformed the way we live. In the 1970s and '80s, Japan seemed to exist in some near future, soaring on the superior technology of Sony and Toyota while the West struggled to catch up. Then a catastrophic 1990 stock-market crash ushered in the 'lost decades' of deep recession and social dysfunction. The end of the boom times should have plunged Japan into irrelevance, but that's precisely when its cultural clout soared - when, once again, Japan got to the future a little ahead of the rest of us. Hello Kitty, the Nintendo Entertainment System, and multimedia empires like Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z were more than marketing hits. Artfully packaged, dangerously cute, and dizzyingly fun, these products made Japan the forge of the world's fantasies, and gave us new tools for coping with trying times. They also transformed us as we consumed them - connecting as well as isolating us in new ways, opening vistas of imagination and pathways to revolution. Through the stories of an indelible group of artists, geniuses, and oddballs, Pure Invention reveals how Japanese ingenuity remade global culture and may have created modern life as we know it. It's Japan's world; we're just gaming, texting, singing, and dreaming in it.

"What happens when the woman who remembers everything...forgets who she herself is? In 1973, Ryozo, a young hiker on a mountain trail in far southern Japan, comes across a disoriented girl who doesn't know her own name, carrying on her the small change of a dozen different nations...and a bag with the initials "E.N." Haunted by nightmares of primordial seas and forests, she tries to find a new life with Ryozo-and reconnect somehow with her endless past"--

هي مسرحية كوميدية ساخرة استطاع من خلالها شكسبير أن يرسم بريشته الأدبية الساحرة صورة بليغة لشخصية «هيلين» الزوجة التي حطمت جدران صمت وإعراض زوجها عنها؛ وأبدلتها إلى محبةٍ سَطَّرَت في صفحة الأدب الإنجليزي فريدةً من فرائد شكسبير الأدبية؛ فقد أراد شكسبير أن يدلل على أنَّ المرأة إذا حملت بين جوانحها حبًّا صادقًا؛ استطاعت أن تولِّدَ من جذوته شُعلةً من وميض الصبر الذي يبرهن على انتصار مكرها في حسم المعركة لصالحها؛ فتتحول بفضل صبرها ومكرها من مقهورة إلى قاهرة. ويرى النقاد أن هذه المسرحية لم تكن وليدة إبداع شكسبير وحده، وإنما شاركه فيها «توماس ميدلتون»؛ وذلك وفقًا للتحليل الأدبي المُعمَّقِ لمفردات المسرحية والنَّظم البلاغي، حيث تتضح البصمة الأسلوبية المُمَيزة لميدلتون، كما تعزي هذه الشراكة إلى النَّهج التعاوني الذي انتهجه كُتاب ذلك العصر في إخراج العمل الأدبي.
