Naomi Hirahara - Strawberry Yellow

Colfax Avenue: Naomi Hirahara, the Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai mystery series, will discuss her new novel Strawberry Yellow (Prospect Park Books), starring the curmudgeonly Japanese American gardener, Hiroshima survivor, gambler, widower, grandfather, and unwitting detective Mas Arai. In this fifth book, he returns to the strawberry farms of his youth in Watsonville, California, where the young Mas had first arrived from Japan in the 1940s. There to attend a cousin's funeral, he encounters murder, family intrigue, and danger.

"Mas, less an amateur detective than a cranky, accidental one, is what makes the story work. His obdurance, his skill as a listener, and even his broken English are charming in a quirky, uncomplicated way."
