Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
These days I'm reading a book in class called Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. The action takes place in Seattle, in the areas around Chinatown and Japantown. The book is about friendship, and in the beginning we get to know Henry. He is a man that just lost his wife and have a distanced relationship with his son, Marty. Henry Grew up in Chinatown during the bombing of Pearl Harbour. We learn that it was not that easy to be an asian young boy, easily mistaken to be japanese during those years in America.
Right now I'm reading about Henry's childhood and his japanese friend, Keiko and how they develop a friendship, dispite the fact that she is japanese.
So far I really enjoy reading the book, and I will update my blog with a new entry every week until I'm done reading the book.
I found the picture on this site.
