T. Coraghessan Boyle
East is East
1991

A depressed Japanese sailor jumps ship and washes ashore near an isolated artist colony on the Georgia coast. He quickly becomes a pawn in a bizarre game of dueling egos between the colony's residents and the bewildered locals. While it may sound like an improbable premise, it proves perfect for Boyle's wicked skewering of pretentious artists, petulant rednecks, and cultural prejudices.
