From the Back Cover:

We’ve all been there - arriving in a foreign airport only to find that the helpfully translated signs are completely baffling ...

You are required to declare all sorts of private things

... then getting to a hotel and being just as perplexed by the notices in the room ...

Beware of your luggage

You will find a minibar which is filled with alcoholics

Tonight dinner will be served in the swimming pool

... or arriving at a restaurant and being slightly scared to order anything ...

Pee soup

Half a lawyer with prawns

Vegetarian stew with cow

These unintentionally hilarious howlers pepper the globe’s tourist destinations, and Charlie Croker has gathered together the very best - and worst - examples to form this addictive and engaging guide. From Creeps Suzette on a menu in Portugal, to the Chinese sign asking visitors to Please treasure the grass, Still Lost in Translation is an affectionate look at what happens when 700 million people try to speak the same language.

About the Author:

Charlie Croker is an author and journalist. His previous books include Lost in Translation, The Little Book of Beckham and A Game of Three Halves. He has also written for The Times, the Independent on Sunday and the Spectator, among others. His name is frequently misspelt as Charlie Crocker.

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Have you ever arrived in a hotel room and been baffled by the information provided? Beware of your luggage. In your room, you will find a minibar which is filled with alcoholics. Do not throw urine around. Have you ever been to a restaurant and wondered what on earth to order? Bored Meat Stew, Lorry Driver Soup, or Kiss Lorraine. Have you ever arrived in an airport and found that the supposedly helpful signs just make you feel more lost? You are required to declare all sorts of private things. Departure. Bus stop. Car rental. Please buy your ticket consciously. Charlie Croker has, and in 2006 he gathered together what he thought was the definitive collection of English language howlers for his bestselling book Lost in Translation . But he reckoned without the great British public.Not only was the book a smash hit, it also opened the floodgates to a deluge of emails and letters stuffed full of further mistranslations and mutilated phrases. From a leaflet from the Museum of Rasputin in Russia (which is apparently situated in a house that belonged a pilot fish Zubov) to a song title on a pirated Pink Floyd CD ( Come Fartably Numb ), the scrambled sentences just kept flooding in.At the same time Charlie has continued his travels and picked up gems of his own. With such a wealth of material, a sequel wasn t just a necessity, it was a public service, and Still Lost in Translation is even more addictive, whimsical and side-splittingly hilarious than the first book.
