"A master storyteller.... Michener, by any standards, is a phenomenon." The Wall Street Journal

Inhaltsangabe

From a great master of historical fiction comes a brilliant tale of love amid war. James A. Michener combines powerful storytelling with deep sensitivity in this novel of a US army man who, against all odds, falls for a fascinating Japanese woman. Stationed in the exotic Far East, Major Lloyd Gruver considers himself lucky. The son of a general, dating the daughter of another powerful military family, he can look forward to a bright future. And he just can't understand guys like Private Joe Kelly, who throw away their lives in the States by marrying local girls. But then Lloyd meets Hana-ogi. After that, nothing matters anymore...nothing but her.

One of the most memorable books for me lately

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Sayonara gefallen?

Michener's way to present Japanese culture via the love story Sayonara is probably the best if not the only way to help me apreciate the many sbtleties of that culture. In addition, he made me think once again of many aspects of life and love in general. I expected little and got so engulfed that I listened to the book in two days. I learned more than expected, was moved more than expected and now I understand much better the four japanese wifes of my acquaintances.
