Sujata Massey is an exciting new author published by HarperPaperbacks. Massey's first novel, The Salaryman's Wife, has just been nominated for the prestigious Anthony Award. Massey's second novel, Zen Attitude, also featuring Rei Shimura, a 27 year-old Japanese American English teaching living in Tokyo, will be out in June 1998.« less
The main character Rei Shimura always seems to be fighting with her Scottish boyfriend, not really fitting in to the Japanese way of life, and on the look out for Japanese antiques. This book is no exception. I do love the way the author has an authentic feel of the environment.
