Memoir 1404597

Publisher Description:
David Mas Masumoto, best-selling author of Epitaph for a Peach, returns to the same ground but digs even deeper in a new, more ambitious book in which he lets his philosophy about man and nature emerge from an absorbing chronicle of his life and that of his Japanese antecedents (The Economist). This is a book about working alongside the ghosts of generations past, about the search for roots in the tragic history of internment camps and in the rural culture of Japan. It is equally about renewal-reinvigorating the farm with organic techniques, teaching his children how to carry on the work that eighty acres of peaches and grapes demand. Masumoto knits past and present to achieve a rare and essential harmony: holding on to what matters, despite the pressures of time and change. Take your time, linger with the book, counsels the San Diego Union-Tribune, Masumoto's serene tales . . . are like a balm. He is a remarkable author, sums up The Atlantic, with a field, and a sensibility, peculiarly his own.
