Our choice for discussion this month is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.
“In the opening pages of Jamie Ford’s stunning debut novel, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle’s Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol. ” Publishers Description
