Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel - Jamie Ford Like "Snow Falling on Cedars," this story helped fill in the gaps in my public school education about the shameful history of the Japanese internment. It's sad that history textbooks left that out for so long.. Sweet (if - little sappy) story with great characters and fascinating details of Seattle during WWII. Loved the jazz details! I did note some anachronisms about 1986, which I understand were fixed in the print version but persist in the eBook: Brandon Lee was still alive rather than in the lakeview cemetery and the Internet wasn't in common enough usage to have grief support groups.
