"In a family not at all reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie, four Japanese-Canadian sisters struggle to escape the bonds of a family and landscape as inhospitable as the sweltering prairie heat." "Their father, moved by an incredible dream of optimism, decides to migrate from the lush green fields of British Columbia to Alberta. There, he is determined to deny the hard-pan limitations of the prairie and to grow rice." "Despite a dearth of both water and love, the family discovers, through sorrow and fear, the green kiss of the Kappa Child, a mythical creature who blesses those who can imagine its magic."--BOOK JACKET
Hopeful monsters : stories by Hiromi Goto ( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""Hopeful monsters" are genetically abnormal organisms that, nonetheless, adapt and survive in their environments. In these stories, the hopeful monsters in question are those who will not be tethered by familial duty nor bound by the ghosts of their past." "Home becomes fraught, reality a nightmare as Hiromi Goto weaves her characters through tales of domestic crises and cultural dissonance. They are the walking wounded - a mother who is terrified by a newborn daughter who bears a tail; a "stinky girl" who studies the human condition in a shopping mall; relatives on holiday with a visiting grandfather who cannot abide their "foreign" nature. But wills are a force unto themselves, and Goto's characters are imbued with the light of myth and magic-realism."--BOOK JACKET
