Description

WHAT IS THE MESSAGE HIDDEN BEHIND A POLITE SMILE? In Yong Takahashi's Atlanta, the immigrants, preacher's wives, strippers, and shopkeepers who pass each other on the street all have a secret story to tell. Caught between generations of family, regrets from their pasts, conflicting cultures, and even countries, each character has a reason to fiercely guard their secret lives, even as they learn that the truth must escape. Takahashi's characters chase their American dreams down back alleys and campaign trails, stumbling under the weight of the gifts their families have given them. A box of Boraxo hand soap. Change for the vending machine. A stranger's driver's license. A mother's love. The smallest exchange could prove kill or cure when you walk the streets of Candyland.

Author Biography

Prize-winning writer Yong Takahashi is a first-generation Korean American. Growing up in Detroit with English as her second language, she worked hard to connect lessons of the New World to rules of the Old World. These struggles helped her develop insight into the human psyche and an eye for appreciating the diverse spectrum of humans around her. Yong lives with her husband in Atlanta, Georgia.
