Wonderful narratives. My sister's teacher, so I might be a bit biased.

It claims to be a memoir but I assume it's fiction, the plot revolves around the author's fixation with his father and race identity. The rest is audiophile magic crystal nonsense you have to be huffing glue to relate to.

Serene, wise collection of poems from a forgotten, working America, the Japanese immigrant experience and where they meet at midnight under a broken street light.

Yes, I know Hongo is talented. Yes, I know I'm breaking the "literary canon" law when I say I'm rarely impressed and that he frankly bores the shit out of me. That said, I do admire his craft, and I met him at a reading on tour supporting this book, I believe, and definitely a nice guy, so I do have many friends and acquaintances who write stuff that's not really my thing (Ron Rash comes to mind) but I can still respect their craft, and besides, I doubt they like my stuff anyway. LOL! Cautiously recommended.… (mere)
