Summary

"Milton Murayama's All I asking for is my body has already become an underground classic and campus bestseller. . . . It turns up on. . . reading lists in the picaresque company of Huckleberry Finn, Catcher in the Rye, and Lucky Jim, books which similarly use a vernacular language and viewpoint to liberate the younger characters from the duplicities and pretensions of inherited conventions, be they American, British, or Japanese. . . . I suggest that you read [it] if you want to experience how Hawaii has come to be the place it is, torn between the traditions of the past and the enterprises of the future."
--Rob Wilson, Bamboo Ridge

"His adroit use of Pidgin makes the book dialectically authentic while still being comprehensible to readers of standard English only."
