"The Ballad of Yachiyo is a tale of illicit passion by Guggenheim-winning playwright Philip Kan Gotanda, set in 1919 among the lush cane fields of Hawaii. Inspired by true events in the playwrights family, The Ballad of Yachiyo follows 16-year-old Yachiyo as she reluctantly leaves her impoverished parents to live with sophisticated relatives. Her mother hopes she will learn the Japanese tea ceremony and other refinements that will help attract a wealthy husband. But as Yachiyo acquires civilized graces from her hostess, Okusan, she also struggles with a growing passion for Okusan's handsome, dissolute husband. The Ballad of Yachiyo is a gripping story of poetic imagery by one of America's leading contemporary playwrights."--Leaf A. Theatre Works, Audio Theatre Collection

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2015 National Indie Excellence Award Winner for Best Suspense Novel. Imagine a helpless, pregnant 16-year-old who's just been yanked from the serenity of her home and shoved into a dirty van. Kidnapped...Alone...Terrified. Now forget her... Picture instead a pregnant, 16-year-old, manipulative prodigy. She is shoved into a dirty van and, from the first moment of her kidnapping, feels a calm desire for two things: to save her unborn son and to exact merciless revenge. She is methodical--calculating--scientific in her plotting. A clinical sociopath? Leaving nothing to chance, secure in her timing and practice, she waits--for the perfect moment to strike. Method 15/33 is what happens when the victim is just as cold as the captors. The agents trying to find a kidnapped girl have their own frustrations and desires wrapped into this chilling drama. In the twists of intersecting stories, one is left to ponder. Who is the victim? Who is the aggressor?
