Father of the Four Passages
By Lois-Ann Yamanaka.
Father of the Four Passages is the unforgettable story of Sonia Kurisu, a streetwise young mother, lounge singer, and artist who single-handedly struggles to raise her child, Sonny boy.
A work of raw energy, searing honesty, and mesmerizing drama, Father of the Four Passages is an extraordinary testament to the redemptive power of love, and stands as Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s most ambitious, powerful, and disturbing novel to date.
