Lois-Ann Yamanaka

Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s Wild Meat and the Bully Burgers and Blu’s Hanging, feature girl heroines speaking in pidgin, the dialect of impoverished 18th-century Hawaiian plantation workers that filtered down through multi-ethnic generations. Poetic and salty, her work reveals a darker side of the Hawaiian paradise.
