Lee is a talented writer, an Okinawan-American, Hawaiian chronicler of an ethnic group within an ethnic group within a polyglot society marginalized and at the same time celebrated by the great mass of mainstream mainland America. In the great tradition of writers like Mark Twain and Kurt Vonnegut, Tonouchi is able to use the colloquial speech and cadence of the Hawaiian-English combo language to successful create a world which is funny, sad and full of epiphanies. A world in which we descendants of Okinawans know is the great bah chi, good da kine fatalist mystery that we can never escape but still have some existential moments of good fun and talk story along the way.
