The chance sighting of a Japanese parasol at the demolition of a hotel on the edge of Seattle's Japantown brings the memories of a turbulent time in American history flooding back to Henry Lee. With the World War Two internment of Japanese-Americans as the backdrop, Jamie Ford's best-selling and award-winning debut novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, published in 2009, explores the forbidden friendship and love between Henry, a Chinese-American and Keiko, a Japanese-American at a time when Old World prejudices prevailed. "In Henry and Keiko, Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us the power of forgiveness and the human heart" (Random House).
