Through compelling reminiscences of his grandfather's life in America and Japan, Allen Say delivers a poignant account of his family's unique crosscultural experience. He warmly conveys his won love for his two countries and describes the strong and constant desire to be in both places at ones: When in one country, he invariably misses the other.
