Kapoho: Memoir of a Modern Pompeii
Item No.: 150354


gift wrap?: 

By Frances H. Kakugawa

In Kapoho, the author shares the stories of her life in the Hawaiian town of Kapoho—a town that no longer exists.

From the wartime drama of "The Enemy Wore My Face"—recalling her instant transformation to distrusted "Jap" after the bombing of Pearl Harbor—to the sweet poignancy of "A One-Chopstick Marriage"—the story of her parents' relationship—Kakugawa weaves a tapestry of memories drawn from life in a Hawaiian plantation village now buried beneath a blanket of lava.

Paper: 112 pp.
