    In 2013 Assata Shakur, founding member of the Black Liberation Army, former Black Panther and godmother of Tupac Shakur, became the first ever woman to make the FBI's most wanted list. Assata Shakur's trial and conviction for the murder of a white State Trooper in the spring of 1973 divided America. Her case quickly became emblematic of race relations and police brutality in the USA. While Assata's detractors continue to label her a ruthless killer, her defenders cite her as the victim of a systematic, racist campaign.

    Barbara, a young American woman teaching at a Tokyo university, inherits an amazing gift: a tansu box containing bottles of plum wine wrapped in paper covered with beautiful calligraphy. There is one bottle for each of the past 20 years of her surrogate mother's life. But why were these odd memoirs left to Barbara, who cannot read Japanese? Set in 1960s Japan, Plum Wine is a powerful tale about cultural differences, romantic hardships, and the legacy of Hiroshima.
