In the opening pages of Jamie Ford's stunning debut, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle's Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol.

superb writing! this story kept me listening far beyond my daily normal fill of audio books.
I felt the story was a little slow to start but after the story is established you WILL be hooked!
Excellent narration and fine details to the era of potrayal.
