Episode Notes

On this episode, we discuss our Books and Boba October 2019 book club pick, Summer of the Big Bachi by Naomi Hirahara, a story about an elderly and jaded Japanese-American gardener named Mas Arai who also happens to be a competent (though reluctant) sleuth. Against his wishes, Mas is drawn into a series of unfortunate events that force him to re-confront his experiences as a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima as he braces himself for the big bachi.
