In Angela Nishimoto's Isabella's Daughter,  a counselor at Hawaii’s elite private school, David is a contradiction of privilege and victimhood. Middle-aged, still obsessed with memories of Isabella, flower of island society, unrequited love of his youth. Until he meets her daughter. He sweats, he stutters, but he’s going for it in Angela Nishimoto’s turn-of-the-century masterpiece of sly comedy and social critique.

Cedric Yamanaka’s Made In Hawaii celebrates life in America’s Fiftieth State. The men and women in this short story collection pursue dreams of a better life. They are teachers, bus drivers, actors, Realtors, Ultimate Fighting Champions, accountants, magicians, beauty queens, Elvis impersonators, graphic designers and personal trainers. Some will fail in their efforts. Others will succeed, often in ways they least expect.
The one thing these memorable characters all share is the place they call home. Hawaii.
