The lovely LA Times review for Picking Bones from Ash was reprinted this week in New York Newsday. A refresher:
Some fiction makes the world a little smaller. In this debut novel, a little girl grows up in a small Japanese village with her mother. The other women in the village are suspicious of the mother's beauty; they ban her from the public bath. But the daughter is a talented piano player and this earns the little family some respect.
