The Neon Jungle:A Novel John D. Macdonald
Lilly had requested a bottle of expensive champagne, which was waiting for them along with glasses on the roof. Lilly popped the bottle open and poured each of the girls a glass. The Scandinavian girl was dressed in a skimpy pink one piece and glittery high-heeled stripper shoes that made her altogether far too tall. She had sparkling, dangling earrings that complimented her long blonde hair. She told Lilly that her name was Ivanna, and she had been working at the hotel almost since its beginning. ´´She must be the Amazon special,´´ Lilly thought and had a quiet laugh to herself. The Mexican girl was Selena. She was dressed in a beautiful jewel-studded bra top and a short, tight black skirt with black heels. Her beautiful white teeth sparkled in the moonlight, and she shook Lilly´s hand and told her that she had been working at the Hotel of Nymphos for quite some time now and she loved it. Lilly complemented her on her strong tongue and gave her a quick greeting hug. Finally, the Kenyan girl. Her skin was so dark she would have blended into the darkness if it wasn´t for her strappy, neon green dress and heels, which glowed in the night light. She had a matching, cloth green headband on her bald head. The girl was so thin, Lilly wondered how she had even found a dress in her size outside of a kid´s clothing store. With some serious envy, Lilly was wondering if the girl weighed less than her and starting to regret that she had decided to indulge in some champagne. She made sure to pour the Kenyan girl a portion size that was at least twice as big as hers, and felt less worried about the calories since she would be consuming less. The girl from Kenya told Lilly that her name was Kioni. She was a new recruit to the Hotel of Nymphos, but she was getting along just fine. ´´That´s good to hear,´´ Lilly told her, extending her arm. ´´It´s a pleasure to meet you, Kioni.´´ Kioni took Lilly´s hand and shook it rather firmly.

Nori Tanaka is thrilled to be studying abroad in Tokyo, Japan, but it isn´t exactly what she had imagined. She expected tranquil gardens and swoopy-roofed houses, not concrete and neon. And everyone assumes that, with her traditional Japanese features, she´s a native instead of the naÃ¯ve Japanese-American that she really is. Even Erik, a gorgeous German student, mistakes Nori for Japanese, and treats her like a personal tour guide. Nori is sure that he´ll like her for who she is once he gets to know her, so what harm can come of temporarily pretending to be Japanese? It doesn´t take long to realize that she has a lot to learn about Japan, and about herself, before she can pass for a native. But after exploring the karaoke clubs in Tokyo, the peaceful temples in Kyoto, and the tranquil heights of Mt. Fuji, Nori knows she has a good chance of finding the hidden Japanese spirit and Zen mindset within herself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jill Apple.

Chronicles the history of Tokyo over the last several centuries Includes accounts of what the city was like across the years After a series of conflicts among feudal lords, the new city of Edo became and remained Japan´s beating heart, and in the 17th century Edo gave birth to a vibrant, new urban culture marked by woodblock prints, the kabuki theater, and haiku poetry. By the 18th century, with its ranks swelled thanks to a flood of provincial daimyo, along with their households, clients, and retainers, Edo had become the most populous urban area in the world, a title Tokyo still can lay claim to today. In the latter 19th and 20th centuries, after the Tokugawa bakufu was overthrown by a modernizing and reforming central government under the Meiji emperor, Edo was renamed Tokyo and became Japan´s new imperial capital. The Meiji emperor wanted Tokyo to be a vibrant, bustling, cosmopolitan city that could be viewed as a meeting ground between the East and West. He also wanted Tokyo to showcase the bunmei kaika (civilization and enlightenment) that the new regime trumpeted, and today Tokyo remains an international center of culture, finance, and media, as well as home to Japan´s most prestigious research universities, its most fashionable shopping districts, the headquarters of its wealthiest corporations, and its largest museums. Now covering over 800 square miles, Tokyo´s skyline seems endlessly expansive, and it also seems to have taken some of the most noteworthy aspects of other great cities. In Shinjuku ward, Tokyo has skyscrapers that look like they belong in Manhattan, while in Minato, the Tokyo Tower instantly brings to mind the Eiffel Tower. To the west, the ward of Shibuya is full of enough neon lights to make Las Vegas blush, and the National Diet Building in Chiyoda houses Japan´s legislature and looks like a capitol building tourists might find across American states. 1.

Durban Dialogues, Indian Voice is an anthology of five engaging and eclectic South African plays by award-winning playwright Ashwin Singh. The plays selected, namely To House, Duped, Spice n Stuff, Reoca Light and Beyond the Big Bangs represent the complete array of Singhs storytelling skills in drama as well as satire. Each play reflects, in different ways, on the complexities and contradictions of life in post-Apartheid South Africa, and focuses particularly on people of Indian origin and their relationship with other South African communities. The plays present a moving portrait of a unique array of characters and are also punctuated by Singhs trademark humour. Each one is set in Durban, South Africas third largest and most diverse city, and they are described by renowned academic and critic Betty Govinden as undressing Durban, as they take us away from the neon lights and candy floss to the reality of the underbelly of post-Apartheid urban and suburban existence.
