Mrs Moneypenny is a working mother of three who runs a business in London, outsources her children to various educational establishments and has been married to a golf-obsessed Australian for more than 20 years. A former stockbroker and investment banker, she has acquired a large mortgage, several academic degrees of varying uselessness, a passion for shooting innocent birds and a private pilot’s licence. Her weekly column appears in the Weekend Financial Times and keeps people entertained and educated around the world.
On March 18 2011, Mrs Moneypenny published a column in the Weekend Financial Times describing her feelings about the devastation in Japan that resulted from the earthquake and tsunami, and the nuclear accidents that followed. As someone who had lived and worked in Tokyo for two years, she felt intimately connected to it but powerless to help. She decided to republish this short collection of columns that she wrote from Japan in 1999 and 2000 and give all the books to the Japan Society to sell in aid of the Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund.
“The tsunami was, above all, a terrible human tragedy. Mrs Moneypenny’s e-mails show us, quite brilliantly, Japan in all its lovely humanity, with its fascination and its foibles, and help boost our confidence in this delightful country’s speedy recovery”
