Rosebud and Other Stories
By Wakako Yamauchi; Edited by Lillian Howan
In your heart there will always be a small ache reminding you that a place waits for your return. The dancers pause. The singers call. The fireflies await.
Secret desires, unfulfilled longing, and irrepressible humor flow through the stories of Wakako Yamauchi, writings that depict the lives of Nisei, second-generation Japanese Americans. Through the medium of Yamauchi’s storytelling, readers enter the world of desert farmers, factory workers, gamblers, housewives, con artists, and dreamers. Elegantly simple in words and complex in resonance, her stories reveal hidden strength, resilience, and the persistence of hope.
