Seeing Stars

Just got word that The East-West House, Christy Hale’s biography of Isamu Noguchi, earned a star from the not-easily-impressed Kirkus Reviews! Thanks, Kirkus!

The review says, “Hale’s striking illustrations and the book’s elegant look are an homage to the Japanese landscape.”  Can’t resist posting two of my favorites:

"They were gaijin, foreigners,/ shunned by everyone."
"They were gaijin, foreigners,/ shunned by everyone."
"Mama bought a tiny wedge of land/ under Chigasaki pines."
"Mama bought a tiny wedge of land/ under Chigasaki pines."

OK, gushing done.
