Publisher Comments:

Celebrating cultural differences as a privilege, Chorus of Mushrooms explores the shifts and collisions of culture through the lives of three generations of women in a Japanese family living in a small town. Author Hiromi Goto demonstrates the clash of cultures through the three women of the novel: a grandmother who refuses to speak English and who hides salted squid in her pockets; a daughter who refuses to speak Japanese and cooks ham with pineapple for special occasions; and a granddaughter who struggles to find a cultural identity somewhere between the two.<P>Winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Book in the Caribbean and Canada; Co-Winner of the Canada-Japan Book Award; and winner of the Grant MacEwan College Book Award, Chorus of Mushrooms is a novel that can't be missed.
