Saturday Night at the Pahala Theatre
This new edition of Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s first collection of poetry, Saturday Night at the Pahala Theatre, includes a wide-ranging interview with the author reflecting on language, her writing process, and how it all began. Yamanaka has since authored WILD MEAT AND THE BULLY BURGERS, BLU'S HANGING, HEADS BY HARRY, FATHER OF THE FOUR PASSAGES, BEHOLD THE MANY, NAME ME NOBODY, and THE HEART'S LANGUAGE.
Readers of Parnassus, Michigan Quarterly Review, Puerto del Sol, and ZYZZYVA have long known a well-kept secret—the power of Lois-Ann Yamanaka’s poetry. Saturday Night at the Pahala Theatre "emerges from the abandoned debris of paradise, a Hawai‘i of cruel girlhoods in small plantation towns ... poetry enabled by its elegant structure as much as its indolent diction—a bold push at the borders of meaning and memory."
—Voice Literary Supplement
