about

Cynthia Kadohata explores human relationships in a Los Angeles of the future, where rich and poor are deeply polarized and where water, food, and gas, not to mention education, cannot be taken for granted. There is an intimate, understated, even gentle quality to Kadohata's writing—this is not an apocalyptic dystopia—that makes it difficult to shrug off the version of the future embodied in her book.
Cynthia Kadohata is the author of the novel The Floating World. Her short stories have appeared in The New Yorker and Grand Street. She is the recipient of a 1991 Whiting Writers Fellowship and lives in Los Angeles.
