In the Japan of the 1980s, the son of a proud U.S. WWII veteran, a girl with secrets she struggles to reveal, and a misfit member of a violent gang are brought together on a hot summer's evening. They can't possibly know what they may do for each other, nor what they will eventually do to each other.
A 1980 Luther graduate, Mark Tiedemann has been in Japan for over half his life. The story grew out of his many experiences in Nagasaki and is infused with an ear for the language, an eye for the ironic, and a sense of compassion for those who may not seem to deserve it.
