"In this debut collection, Mary Yukari Waters, a Japanese-American writer, opens a window onto a foreign culture as she reveals the universal humanity of her characters. These stories explore Japanese society caught between the long shadow of World War II and the rapid advance of Westernization. The women and children who inhabit these tales have lost husbands and fathers in the war and now face a world dramatically altered by Western influence." "In "Aftermath," a mother watches her son play American dodgeball and eat Western food as she desperately tries to keep alive the memory of his father, who was killed in the war. "Since My House Burned Down" depicts a Japanese widow, permanently displaced from her kitchen by her daughter-in-law, reflecting on the deprivations of wartime as the acidic, foreign smell of tomato sauce wafts upstairs. In "Egg-Face," latent hope kindles for thirty-year-old, jobless Ritsuko when a matchmaker arranges for her to meet a handsome young man. And "The Way Love Works" explores favoritism in three generations of women when a Japanese American teenager returns to Japan with her mother."--BOOK JACKET
