For Marie Mutsuki Mockett, public and private converged in the aftermath of the March 2011 Japanese earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear meltdown. Mourning her Japanese grandfather and the recent death of her American father, she realized that time-honored Japanese rituals placed her own grief and coping mechanisms in meaningful new contexts. Gentle and reflective, Where the Dead Pause & the Japanese Say Goodbye gracefully interweaves the exotic and the immediate. Editor's recommendation.
