[All I Asking for Is My Body (Kolowalu Book)] EBOOK

First and foremost I must state up front that this work is a novella length work clocking in at approximately 100 pages But don t let that dissuade you as Milton Murayama packs into those 100 pages than most novels manage to do in 300 pages This is an outstanding work capturing so many varied aspects of the nisei second eneration Japanese Americans experience in Hawai i during the years leading up to and including the bombing at Pearl Harbor I understand completely why it is considered a classic as it drew me in with its deceptively simple prose rich characters and vivid setting all accomplished without verbosityThe story is told from the first person point of view of Kiyoshi the second son in a Japanese family who came to Hawai i in the 1930s to work on the sugar cane plantations in order to better their lives His older brother Tosh is a headstrong young man the manifestation of the The Second Cure growing differences between the issei firsteneration Japanese Americans and the nisei and as vastly different from Kiyoshi as can be imagined In some respects Kiyoshi is stuck between the old ways of filial piety represented by his parents and the birth of a new Essential Andhra Cookbook: With Hyderabadi and Telengana Specialities generation of Americans of Japanese ancestry represented by Tosh The family is crippled by massive debt and as much as Tosh rebels against the thought of being saddled as first son Kiyoshi is relatively content in discovering his own role in this new worldBut neither Tosh nor Kiyoshi are stereotypes As often as Tosh finds the old waysrating and confining he also find moments of pride in his heritage Kiyoshi seems comfortable in the divide between the two The Sorcerer's Apprentice generations seeming to understand theood points of the old ways but fully aware that his Eagle's Gate generation is somehow different Never is the angst in either character over the top but when Tosh utters the titular line All I asking for is my body it packs an emotional wallopMurayama wisely chose to keep the narration in traditional English while much of the dialog is in Hawaiian pidgin creole This choice expertly creates a realistic setting while brilliantly capturing the differences between the ways the issei and nisei communicate In turn this subtly demonstrates therowing divide between the two culturesWhat also is fascinating is Murayama s depiction of life on the plantation The segregation encouraged by the luna plantation bosses shows us how the different racial communities were often pitted against one another to the benefit of the corporations milling the cane It is fascinating and realistic to see the way the various races were pitted against one another methods that resonate in today s political world Segregation by debt is also depicted well the deliberate system of keeping the poor in their place Kiyoshi s family are trapped in their lives by massive debt and bitterly low wages It is no wonder Tosh feels suffocated as if he is in a prison And that is how it sometimes feels With the bombing of Pearl Harbor we as readers know that the internment of Japanese Americans is coming but in many ways Kiyoshi s family has already been imprisoned from the time of their arrival in Hawai i by the colonial system The bombing of Pearl is handled briefly iving us the sense of what it must have been like being on a plantation so far away from actions in the harbor The event seemed so far away but had such An Impact Upon Their impact upon their lives is all done subtly but allows Murayama All I Asking for Is My Body Kolowalu Books All I Asking for Is My Body Kolowalu Books Paperback Paperback – May by Milton Murayama Author › Visit 's Milton Murayama Page Find all Kolowalu Books Paperback Paperback – May by Milton Murayama Author › Visit 's Milton Murayama Page Find all books read about the author and See search results for this author Are you an author?

E I m currently out through the lens of the past especially for Japanese descent in Hawaii before the war started It was interesting to see how the relationship between Filipinos and Japanese were It was also interesting to read about the plantations and fighting for money The writing is beautiful too The story also feels complete despite how short this novel is I picked this up in a Kailua bookstore a place with several shelves of Hawaiiana including one with many older out of print titles The staff member helping me navigate called anything over 6 expensive and failed to share my archivist daughter appreciation for the early 20th C titles that seemed reasonably priced to meSince I am not in the habit of collecting old Hawaiian books I stuck with some beginner 6 titles but I stil haven t otten over how different the scale of EVERYTHING is in Hawaii 30 miles across takes you from shore to mountain to shore Land plants people and history are all sparkling new compared to the continents And the sad dark events driving so much of that new history are often presented indifferently Chalk it up to the tourism industry I uess but I am havi Really impressive use of dialect here Few writers can handle transcription without obtrusion so well Really enhances the story without being an end in itself A beautiful and early on deceptively simple looking narrative idyllic and sometimes sweet though the dark cloud of tradition exacerbated by condition hangs heavy over the issei and nisei Then as the brothers row up the pitch of that dark cloud reaches oppressive pressure and then when the war comes the new perspective of true shame felt by all but expressed here especially in the nisei throws everything into a fever Super interesting to read in conjunction with Toshio Mori s Yokohama California which though taking place the same time has far different balance in terms of the relationship between issei and nisei and what the war does to community and the sense of future In the Murayama there is no future because of the condition and the war represents both a shame and an opportunity to escape obligation and toil A lot to mine here Does so much well captures a period of time with all its nuance while speaking to so much beyond Excellent I didn t want this one to end Luckily there are two or three books in the series Terrific insights into rural Hawaii plantation life for Japanese immigrants Murayama deals with intergenerational cultural conflicts and language evolution between the issei and nissei and the horror of economic bondage that the plantation system wrought and was my first real insights on all of that It ends with the irony that the bombing of Pearl Harbor was a break out opportunity for some Hawaii based Japanese This was first published in 1975 though copyrighted in 1959 Many issues are still current Mr Murayama addressed this to my parents in 1988 I don t know why it s taken me 31 years to read it A story of a Japanese American boy rowing up in rural Hawaii prior to WWII He and his brother are at caught between their immigrant parents old ways from the old country and American ways They are dirt poor which is typical of many Japanese Americans at that time This is a classic just about a hundred pages However it says so much as Murayama is very subtle and there are very strong messages between the lines The writing is innocent and raw yet powerful and full of sou.

O explore the effect on the nisei boys And that reaction is not standard text book The reactions are wonderfully varied reflecting the complexity of emotions in the boysNow I don t want to ive the impression that this story is all sturm and drang some sort of melodrama It is utterly realistic but it is peppered with humor and simple beauty And best of all within the family there are no ood The Ancient Greeks: Ten Ways They Shaped the Modern World guys or baduys Just a family trying to make its wayI highly recommend this book not only for it s realistic portrayal of plantation life in Hawai i and of the nisei experience but for the emotional truth that underlies it all The plantation days are always either romanticized or vilified People who Tricycle (HISTOIRE) grew up then reminisce about swapping laulau for musubi speaking Hawaiian and pidgin with the other kids swimming and fishing in the clean open ocean every day and playing music late into the night at the knees of wise folksy old timers Plantation bosses kept everybody fed and clothed and entertained and educated with sports teams and movies and fall festivals a little zion on earth And then there s the other view the plantations consciously set about breaking the Hawaiians from their land and drove wedges between the different ethnicroups so that they could never effectively I read this 15 or 20 years ago Might have picked it up on my second trip to Hawaii Thought it was a ood history of rowing up Nisei in Hawaii before WWII So many of the Nisei formed the 442nd troop including Mae s Let Freedom Reign': The Words of Nelson Mandela.
