I’d like to introduce American Expat returnee, Charles Ayres. Charles is funny and talented, and quite famous in his own lunchtime. He’s written for Harper’s Bazaar and Metropolis, handled the international PR for Tokyo FM’s annual Earth Day concert and popped up the big and small screen, most notably on the Japanese TV show “It’s OK to Laugh” (Waratte ii Tomo) and film “The Billion Yen Jackpot!” (Juoku-en Kasegu!)
Charles lived in the Land of the Rising Sun for 12 years and left after the 2011 earthquake. After experiencing the Big One, he moved to San Francisco to wait for the next Big One. He’s released his autobiography, Impossibly Glamorous, “The rudest book you’ll ever love,” detailing his life growing up as a raver in the American Midwest and taking over New York and Japan.
Charles has been a great supporter of Perking the Pansies, virtually from the beginning, and jumped in to help with promoting the book. He was one of the first to review Perking the Pansies

He sounds like a really interesting man, and I love the photo too. I lived in Japan for a couple years and remember those darned earthquakes, though nothing on last year’s scale…I’m going to read his review now.
Super interview! Am enjoying the book tour!!!
. . such celestial circles you move in Jack, you’ll be introducing us to Queens and Kings next!
Loved the review and Charles’ style.
Don’t know too many kings.
Jack, your interview candor cracked me up. Cracked. Me. Up. Crazy, crazy man! (I enjoyed Impossibly Glamorous’ blog, too, but he’d closed various posts for comments.)
I had such fun writing it. One of my favs! I’ll ask him about the closed comments
