Description: Kyoko Mori's life falls into two halves: childhood in Japan, adulthood in the Midwest. In both places, she has been an outsider, unable quite to mimic everyone's polite lies. In twelve penetrating, painful, and at times hilarious essays, she explores the codes of silence, deference, and expression that govern Japanese and American women's lives.

Mori explores the ties that bind us to family and the lies that keep us apart, the rituals of mourning that make death human, and the images.of the body that make sex seem foreign to Japanese women and ever-present to Americans.
