Pearl City: Stories from Japan and Elsewhere is a collection of short fiction set in Japan and in seven other countries around the world. Driven by characters who are tough, gritty, charming and witty, each of the sixteen tales takes the reader on a trip which ends with a twist.
Six of the stories are set in Japan, and the others in Hong Kong, East Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, France, Austria and Cambodia. The stories carry themes of freedom, family, redemption, justice, courage, corruption, girl power, but mostly triumph over adversity.
