Author J. L. Morinabout this book: SAZZAE, Gold Medal winner of the 2010 eLit Book Award, and 2010 winner of a Living Now Book Award, started as a creative thesis at Harvard.

J.L. Morin, nominated for the Pushcart Prize, opens the door to a wondrous cityscape where Japanese and American youth find each other in Tokyo. Discover the machinations of a lovers' triangle, a painter's inspiration, and a teen idol's dark secret through sensuous and evocative language. The pain and pleasures of Japan are remembered with lyric passion.

• "Like opening an expensive box of chocolates." — Sini Cedercreutz

• "Her most delightful descriptions are of the intrigues in the personal lives of the protagonists." — The Harvard Crimson

• "Japanese myth beautifully percolates into the lives of the three young people." — The Harvard Independent, by Tiffany Hsieh
