shofuThe Good Shufu by Tracy Slater

In this memoir of travel and love, a fiercely independent American woman finds everything she ever wanted in the most unexpected place. Shufu means ‘housewife’ in Japanese and it’s the last thing Tracy ever thought she’d call herself. A writer and academic, Tracy had carefully constructed a life she loved in her beloved hometown of Boston. But everything was upended when she fell head over heels for a Japanese salaryman based in Osaka who barely spoke her language. Deciding to give fate a chance, Tracy built a life in Japan filled with contradictions and dissonance, but also strange moments of enlightenment and joy– Provided by publisher.
