Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sleeping on Potatoes, A Lumpy Adventure from Manzanar to the Corporate Tower by Carl Nomura is a true life account of how the U.S. government stripped away the citizenship of Japanese Americans during WWII, incarcerated them in American style concentration camps and confiscated their property. It's the story of how one man triumphed over hatred and racism to become a physicist and visionary leader in solid state physics. Told with a wry and warm sense of humor, this is a book we couldn't put down!
