D&R: MariNaomi

Image result for turning japanese marinaomi

I finished Marimaomi’s comic “Turning Japanese”

It’s a funny and anxious memoir about trying to learn about Japanese language and culture when her mother refused to share any of it with her growing up.

It’s heartbreaking to think about not being about to speak the same language as your grandparents.

It also shares some interesting experiences of the culture shock MariNaomi experiences in her journey to reconnect with her heritage.
