Tennis Clubbed, Snubbed and Rubbity-Dub Dubbed

Tennis Clubbed, Snubbed and Rubbity-Dub Dubbed

Author(s): Eric Madeen

Location(s): Yokohama

Genre(s): Fiction, Romance

Era(s): Postmodern present


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.
