Synopsis

Poetry. Fiction. Asian American Studies. This is a work of fiction during which the characters interact in the form of poetic novellas. Born on the island of Molokai and presently living in Kahalu'u, Yamanaka's poems have appeared in such journals as BAMBOO RIDGE: THE HAWAII WRITER'S QUARTERLY, Michigan Quarterly Review, PARNASSUS, Puerto del Sol and Zyzzyva. "Lois-Ann Yamanaka is a fresh new voice in poetry and prose: irreverent, sensual, street-smart, and passionate. She refuels the English language with her own brand of island music--rich in distinctive rhythms and magical insights"--Jessica Hagedorn.
