The Good Shufu by Tracy Slater


Reviewed by Emi Weiss (Library Staff)

This book is the true story of a woman who falls in love with a Japanese man and ultimately gives up her life in the U.S. to live in Japan and take care of her husband, his ailing father, and eventually their child. It’s an interesting book because the writer is an uncommon housewife, or “shufu,” in Japanese. Before falling in love, she is a fiercely independent, professional woman. She had been stubbornly single and progressively urban in her style. Her journey in this life shift is written with great wit and alacrity. I recommend it.
