"From the Future Bakery to Old Man Dam, Tamai Kobayashi reveals the ordinary and extraordinary lives of Asian-Canadian lesbians and their families with a quiet, intense passion. Kobayashi has a sharp eye for the poetic in the everyday, and for the small resonant truths that gleam amidst the seemingly mundane. Contemplative, gorgeous, and precise, this is a book about how history, personal and global, creates the present and how the present evolves into history."- Larissa Lai, author of When Fox Is a Thousand
