compelling if overlong tale of a headstrong Japanese American lesbian law student obsessed with discovering her family history and solving a murder mystery Jackie Ishida, 25, is undone by the sudden death in 1994 of her loving, seemingly healthy Japanese grandfather, Frank Sakai A veteran of World War II, he lived a philanthropic life and in the 1960s owned a small grocery in the racially integrated Crenshaw district he grew up in When Jackie s aunt Lois finds a large shoebox with 38,000 in cash in Frank s closet, both women are perplexed, particularly since they also discover a mysterious beneficiary, Curtis Martindale, in a decades old will Lois dispatches Jackie to find Curtis Enter strong, street smart James Lanier, a cousin of Curtis s, who informs Jackie that Curtis is dead An employee at Frank s store during the Watts riots in 1965, Curtis, along with three other black teenage boys, was found frozen to death in the store s freezer This heinous crime was never reported nor discussed within the Sakai family and though white beat cop Nick Lawson was pegged as a prime suspect, the case was never solved and Frank closed the store permanently As Jackie and James dig deeper into Curtis s past, their friendship and awkward attraction to each other takes its toll on Jackie s fading three year relationship with girlfriend Laura In chapters alternating past and present, clues are uncovered that romantically link Curtis s mother Alma to Frank When a surprise suspect in the killings is fingered, it paves the way for a dark conclusion rooted in skepticism, injustice and racial intolerance Somewhat overplotted but never lacking in vivid detail and authentic atmosphere, the novel cements Revoyr s reputation as one of the freshest young chroniclers of life in L.A.Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.Spanning three generations, Revoyr s follow up to The Necessary Hunger 1997 uses the murder of three boys during the 1965 Watts riot as the pivot point for a moving, sometimes harrowing exploration of race relations among black, Japanese, and white residents of L.A When her grandfather dies in 1994, young Japanese American lawyer Jackie Ishida seeks to discover why her grandfather, Frank, had once planned to leave his Crenshaw grocery store to one of the murder victims, a black teen from the neighborhood After enlisting the help of one of the young man s relatives, rock solid community group worker James Lanier, Jackie embarks on a journey that will enable her to understand why she has fled so far from her Japanese roots she won t even consider dating a fellow Asian Switching effortlessly from the mid 1990s to the 1960s, the 1940s, and back again, Revoyr peoples the landscape with compelling characters who are equally believable whether they re black, Japanese, male, female, gay, or straight With prose that is beautiful, precise, but never pretentious, she brings to vivid life a painful, seldom explored part of L.A s past that should not be forgotten If Oprah still had her book club, this novel likely would be at the top of her selection list Frank Sennett Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved
