This week, I'm featuring a book I just finished at lunch time, Sayonara Slam by Naomi Hirahara.
This book features Mas Arai, a survivor of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and an almost retired gardener in Southern CA. And yes, this book does feature baseball. In fact, here's how the book begins.
At first, Mas Arai thought it was a bat boy playing some kind of prank.
Moving ahead to page 56 (okay, pages 54-55), we find this:
Yuki gave a slip of a smile and tapped on his phone again. "Let's see what Akemi tells us."
"That's what I decided to call my phone. So my grandmother is still close to me."
Mas grimaced. He had heard of mama's boys, but a grandma's boy? That was carrying it too far.
Look for the review on Tuesday. Have a great weekend. Me? I'm hoping to get over this cold.
