When in Asia…Customs, Culture and Comedy (Cultureshock) Paperback – 16 Feb 2015
by various (Author), Trigg (Illustrator)
When cultures meet, the results are often surprising and frequently hilarious. Even as the world becomes globally connected, customs and practices are preserved in very localised ways. In Asia, where traditions abound, daily life can be a minefield of misunderstandings but also a rich source of amusement and enlightenment.
Casting its net over the varied countries of the continent, this new book takes a fun approach to life in different cultures. Each page introduces an unusual custom, accompanied by a cartoon drawn by the artist who has illustrated all the titles in the celebrated CultureShock! series.
From strange eating habits to unusual greetings and sayings, from disparate attitudes to work and play to the sometimes bizarre ways of love and sex, this book captures it all with a knowing wink.
