Editorial Reviews

Northwest Asian Weekly - Samantha Pak

Sone reminds us that the anti-Japanese sentiment and threat of war [was] looming over them…but it doesn’t stop the family members from going forward with their lives – showing the kind of strength we all wish we had.

Pacific Northwest Quarterly - Greg Lewis

Rare is the book with staying power like that of Monica Sone’s Nisei Daughter….[T]he book also owes its appeal to the immediacy of its narrative, to its incisive, unsentimental portraits of family and friends, and finally, to the author’s own abundant humanity.

International Examiner - Sumi Hayashi

Nisei Daughter is a book of its time, but it deserves to be read and re-read and considered within changing cultural perspectives and treasured for the voice it gives to a period in American history that still needs to be understood and should never be forgotten.
