“Tennis Clubbed, Snubbed and Rubbity-Dub Dubbed” by Eric Madeen

| Website | Facebook |

A NOVEL SET IN THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN …

In historically rich Yokohama, the wicked shiver of the tennis snub pits David Adams against K: a puffed up, xenophobic tyrant who rules over the courts of a club that has as its anthem, ironically, the promotion of international friendship.

Off the courts, David labors on a “McContract” at a Japanese university while married to the proverbial nail that sticks up, a fiery medical doctor who rides a 1200cc rice-rocket Yamaha. A heady tale of comparative culture and revenge, Tennis Clubbed goes down like a cocktail of pure fire … served up in the hall of the mountain king.

Reviews:

“Lots of nuance and a fun way to experience more of the Japanese culture. A quick, sports fiction read that can easily be finished in one sitting.” Michael Emoff

“I’ve played tennis off and on for twenty years, sometimes competitively, so I knew I had to read this book. It fully delivered. Mr. Madeen’s conversational style makes it so the book almost resembles a conversation between the reader and an old friend. I really, really enjoyed reading this book, and I learned a lot about Japanese culture and customs in the process.” Andrea Ramirez B.
