David Benjamin lived in Japan for 7 years, where he was editor-in-chief of Tokyo Journal, contributing editor and columnist for The Japan Times Weekly, and wrote a weekly column for The Mainichi Daily News. He was also a regular sumo columnist in Shukan Bunshun and an occasional commentator on sumo and other sports on television, and remains the only foreigner ever to cover Japan's national sport on a regular basis in a major Japanese-language publication. He lives in New York and Paris.
Sumo is a fresh and funny introduction to the fascinating world of sumo, Japan's national sport. Author David Benjamin peels away the veneer of sumo as a cultural treasure and reveals it as an action-packed sport populated by superb athletes who employ numerous strategies and techniques to overcome their gargantuan opponents. Sumo provides an engaging, witty, behind-the-scenes look at sumo today.
