An American Branch
Kenneth Wayne (author)

Product Description

The Japanese post-war economic miracle halted in the 1990s, a time that has been called the “lost decade” by many. Although the country suffered a severe downturn, it was still flush with revenue, so certain sectors prospered. Due to the belief that college ensured a successful career and to the large number of young people at the time, higher education was in great demand. The domestic universities were unable to handle the short-term surge, so some Japanese companies formed joint-ventures with dozens of foreign universities to provide an “international” alternative.

An American Branch finds Wayne’s everyman, Charles Journeyman, as the director of an English language program at a new American university branch in Osaka. He is happily married to a lovely Japanese woman, but their inability to have children has created a distance between them. This increases as Journeyman becomes busier with work. Unexpectedly, he is given a seductive reward . . .
