    One thought on “Mothertalk: Life Stories of Mary Kiyoshi Kiyooka”

    1. I am giving this book a 3.5/5 because they are the anecdotes of a woman who never had the ability to talk about her life largely due to the language barriers inflicted. I feel she deserves the consideration and her story to be readally, these tales are sad reflections on one's life as an immigrant within Canada during the early 20th century and how many traditions (including those associated with family bonding and care) have disintegrated under Western ideals. the text itself is poorly compiled [...]

    2. So many interesting points of view of an Issei woman in Alberta, often poetic, poignant in its frankness. Wonder though because it was processed through an interpreter then the son and finally another editor. Enjoyed discussing with the Nikkei National Museum group.
