I'm not sure I've ever eaten a persimmon. These look lovely.
Yes, they are... Here in Sao Paulo state, Brazil, we have many orchards of persimmons because of the Japanese immigrants. Perhaps you can find them in California or Oregon, where Japanese installed themselves almost one century ago in USA.There is a beautiful novel called The Buddha in the attic, from Nikkey writer Julie Otsuka that speaks about it (the Japanese immigration in USA). I read it last year in my Reading Circle meetings. It is so beautiful and sad.Ah, persimmons are lovely and yummy!Thanks for writing!

My library has that book and it sounds like one I would enjoy. I've added it to my list of books to read. Thanks for the recommendation.
I wanted to let you know that I just finished reading Buddha in the Attic and your description was right. A very sad subject to deal with but presented so beautifully, so touching. I have some knowledge of the subjects but have never read about them from this perspective and it gave me a very different understanding of the people involved, especially of how they reacted and coped, not all in the same way but in a variety of ways, even though all of the same heritage and initial starting point. It made me wish she had not ended where she did. I yearned to hear more about what these people experienced and felt in the concentration camps and once they were released after the war, told from the same perspective as the first part of their stories. Thank you for recommending this book.
Hi Sheila! Do you believe that only today I saw your comment? I am sorry! It is great that you read and liked a recommendation, there isn't greatest satisfaction to a reference librarian than a reader likes his/her reading advice! Thank you so much for giving me this satisfaction!Well, a novel about the Nikkey community after the Second War... I know one, although I personally hadn't read it yet. It is called Snow falling on cedars, from David Gutterson.Thanks for writing!
