Hisaye Yamamoto was an American author. Born in 1921 Yamamoto survived Japanese-American internment during World War II. She often wrote of the conflict in cultural shifts between 1st and 2nd generation immigrants.
If you missed it, the Google doodle celebrated Yamamoto last week!
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, today’s Doodle celebrates Japanese-American short story author Hisaye Yamamoto, among the first Asian Americans to receive post-war national literary recognition. Throughout an acclaimed career, Yamamoto constructed candid and incisive stories that aimed to bridge the cultural divide between first and second-generation Japanese-Americans by detailing their experiences in the wake of World War II.
