T. Coraghessan gives an overview of the book:

Young Japanese seaman Hiro Tanaka, inspired by dreams of the City of Brotherly Love and trained in the ways of the samurai, jumps ship off the coast of Georgia and swims into a net of rabid rednecks, genteel ladies, descendents of slaves, and the denizens of an artists’ colony.

Coraghessan Boyle, praised by Digby Diehl in Playboy as “one of the most exciting young fiction writers in America,” the result is a sexy, hilarious tragicomedy of thwarted expectations and mistaken identity, love, jealously, and betrayal.
