On February 28th, 2012, an excerpt from "Jet Black and the Ninja Wind," the YA novel-in-progress by Leza Lowitz and Shogo Oketani about a kick-ass female ninja who fights to save her ancestral home in Tohoku and its indigenous tribal treasure, was published in the anthology My Postwar Life: New Writings from Japan and Okinawa (edited by Elizabeth McKenzie). Available now! The novel has been a decade in the making, and it's great to be amongst such stellar company (Roland Kelts, Takayuki Tatsumi, Mari Kotani, Christopher Yohmei Blasdel, Deni Bechard, Stephen Woodhams, Setsuko Ishiguro and others) in this powerful anthology of new writing from Japan. Thanks Elizabeth!
