Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Asian American Studies. DIZZY SUSHI is many things at once—a young woman's travels in Japan, a pilgrimage to a source of Zen, an inner journey, a love story, and a search for home and family. At a dizzy sushi bar tasty tidbits float round and round and this book is much the same—insight, detail, image, feeling and experience are all waiting to nourish the reader. Melissa J. White has captured the experience of Japan in the late 1980s and a world at the height of international economic influence. From the humorous potential of language to cultural misunderstanding and also appreciation, this memoir is full of moments both rough and tender.
