Finding Land: Stories of Japan
by Marian Pierce
A Jewish girl from Cleveland meets a pregnant Texas belle over dried squid in a Tokyo grocery store. Their common ground? Both newlyweds, married to Japanese men. Despite being unable to decipher the maps in Tokyo's train stations well enough to know where they're going, they set off on a quest to find land. Will they find space for themselves, in a place where there's none?
