In Marie Mutsuki Mockett’s Where the Dead Pause, and the Japanese Say Goodbye: A Journey, Mockett is guided through rituals of grief by a colorful cast of Zen priests and ordinary Japanese. M.J. Fievre’s coming-of-age memoir, A Sky the Color of Chaos, brings to life the horrors and the beauty of growing up in Aristide-era Haiti. Nikki Moustaki’s The Bird Market of Paris tells the story of the author’s love of birds, and her relationship with her grandfather, her mentor and dearest companion. Suki Kim presents a moving and rare glimpse of life in the world’s most unknowable country, in Without You, There Is No Us: My Time With the Sons of North Korea’s Elite.
