NEW IN JAPANESE! Youtube slideshow/video on Yokohama Yankee
Leslie Helm interviewed by Eric Liu on “Seattle Voices” here.
Yokohama Yankee is a marvelous and eloquent work of family history (that) sheds light on the political, economic, cultural, and racial interactions and tensions between Japan and the United States for more than a century and a half, right up to the present day. This is a humane and insightful book that will be read many years from now—James Fallows, the Atlantic, author of China Airborne
A lovely, unsettling family story and a vivid traversal of modern Japanese history that will impress the jaded Japan scholar and inspire the curious general reader or memoir fan—Library Journal
