02 Mar / The Loom and Other Stories by R.A. Sasaki [in What Do I Read Next? Multicultural Literature]
Nine interrelated stories make up this debut collection, mostly about the San Francisco-based Terasaki family, living with the legacy of the Japanese American internment and the devastation of World War II. Most of the stories are filtered through the perception of Jo, the youngest daughter. Sasaki is herself a third-generation San Franciscan native.
