I attended the "Rape of Nanking" Conference at Princeton's Wilson Center of International Studies with the late Iris Chang as I was researching my novel, "The Gook Lover." She encouraged me to write my book even as she at the peak of her too-short brilliant career.

"The Gook Lover" is a pro-Asian, anti-Imperial story of a young Japanese officer who lost his soul at the Rape of Nanking and other war crimes.
He rises from lowly latrine orderly during the U.S. Occupation to eventual acclaim as "modern Japan's Henry Ford." A casual glance in a
Manhattan book store window ignites his shame and possibly, that of
Japan's denial of its war guilt.

May I send you a copy of my book? There is no obligation of any
