Beads, Boys, and the Buddha: Stories
Funny, neurotic, magical and poignant, the stories in Wendy Miyake's Beads, Boys and the Buddha lead us into the worlds of seven Japanese women born, raised and trying to cope with reality in Hawai'i. They're having trouble finding love, among other things, and they seek out answers in beads, Buddhas, expensive fish, kindergarten oracles and even a gynecologist turned monk/therapist. But in the end, each woman realizes that she must become her own Buddha in order to manifest the impossible.
