Kapoho: Memoir of a Modern Pompeii


In Kapoho: Memoir of a Modern Pompeii, Frances H. Kakugawa shares stories of her life in the town of Kapoho on the Island of Hawaii—a town that no longer exists. From the wartime drama of “The Enemy Wore My Face”—recalling her instant transformation to distrusted “Jap” after the bombing of Pearl Harbor—to the sweet poignancy of “A One-Chopstick Marriage”—the story of her parents’ relationship—Kakugawa weaves a tapestry of memories drawn from life in a Hawaiian plantation village now buried beneath a blanket of lava.
