What People are Saying About This

Robert Shapard

"One of the best books of contemporary Hawaii stories I've read in years. Most of these local characters are struggling to find how to live, with and without sons and daughters, families, lovers, communities. Along the way they're likely, to discover strange redemptions in the natural world, whether underwater or above ground as in "Termites a great story. Or they're struggling to find how to face death. For George Silva, in "Heart," with the help of his haole neighbor, this takes a darkly hilarious turn. In the title story, a short novel, our ideas of justice are questioned as Glenn Rainey and Marie Suzuki are pushed to their limits, ten beyond them, as they await the return from prison of the murder Roy Stiles. It's long been known that MacMillan is one of the best writers in Hawaii-the Hawaii Award for Literature was no fluke. This collection shows why..."--(Robert Shapard, Manoa: A Pacific Journal of International Literature)
