The book involves a lot of historical research--in fact, it's sort of an appropriation novel, initiated in part by my appropriation film 100 Tikis--but this new work is a novel. Its characters traverse time, eras even--its plot is my way of expressing the changes, at least through my imagination, that have occurred in Samoana, the main setting of the story. (less)

Coconut Milk by Dan Taulapapa McMullin
"As a literature reviewer the last couple of years, I read a lot of bad poetry. This, on the other hand, was beautiful. The visuals invoked of the South Pacific are lovely, and the empathy is wonderful."
