Meeting Luciano: A Novel
Anna Esaki-Smith (au)
To Hanako Shimoda, opera star Luciano Pavarotti is a god. To her daughter, Emily, this fixation on Pavarotti is a harmless fantasy, the by-product of her mother’s loneliness. This is the story Emily tells about what happens when Hanako acts on her fantasy & invites Pavarotti to a post-performance supper at their home. Emily has gone back after college to work at her old summer job -- waiting tables at a local Japanese steakhouse. When it becomes clear that Hanako is renovating the house in preparation for the visit from Pavarotti, Emily is thrown into a quandary: how to deal with a parent who might be losing it. “A wry, understated approach to the themes of assimilation, growing up, finding yourself -- & loving your mother.
