University of Hawai'i Press

This interview, conducted especially for the collection, falls into a sequence of themes. It begins from Yamashita’s starting out as a writer and, given the extensive travels and the obligations of family, her negotiation of a functioning work-life balance. Discussion turns to the process of composition of each of the novels as well as Anime Wong. She addresses the influence of popular as well as high literary culture in her writing and her career as a Professor of Literature and Writing at the University of California Santa Cruz.
