I started reading a novel which my friend wrote in English.
He used to be a TV producer.
He resigned the job, he obtained MA of American literature from Tokyo university, and received ph.D from An American university.
He used to teach American literature in the university for a while.
Now he is teaching at a college in Japan.
It's amazing that a Japanese man who had not lived in the US until his age of thirty taught American literature at an American university.
It was published a few years ago in the US.
It was a fiction. However his career seems to be reflected to some of the sentences. I'm enjoying reading the book.
