kjhp may my heart always be open
to little
birds who are the secrets of
living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

kjhp Historical Fiction
A woman and her two children are sent to a Japanese interment camp in Utah in 1942. Each chapter is told from a different point of view. Powerful.

  •   distressedfxapp Thanks for the recommendation! 6d
  •   leftofthemiddle Where's your favourite place to read? 🔆 6d
  •   robanjohnson I'll want to read that, too. Until I became a teacher, I had somehow missed that whole event in history. We usually discuss it when we discuss propaganda techniques. 6d
  •   kjhp @distressedfxapp you are welcome. @leftofthemiddle anywhere!!! 5d
  •   kjhp @robanjohnson I was thinking about that. We never talked about it at all in high school, and barely in college. Have you read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet? Also fabulous. 5d
  •   robanjohnson No. I've seen it though. What's it about @kjhp ? 5d
  •   kjhp It's fiction - told from the point of view of a Chinese man remembering his teens in CA. He was friends with a Japanese girl who was removed to an interment camp. It's really good. @robanjohnson 4d

kjhp The rain to the wind said,
You push and I'll pelt.'
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged--though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.

Great for reluctant readers
It felt too much like writing-to-become-a-movie to me.

  •   robanjohnson I'll have to take a look. 2w
  •   kjhp I think if I hadn't read his other book (Food, Girls and Other Things I can't Have) I may have liked it more. It has tons of action and dialogue though, so I think lots of kids would like it. @robanjohnson 2w
