Hawai‘i has never seen a book like this. More than 1100 pages, with more than 350 selections by more than 250 authors in nine languages, with translations.
Honolulu Stories stands, for size, and with its combination of historical depth, multicultural range, and the widest variety of literary genres, there is no other American city anthology that matches it in sweep. It brings together two hundred years of writing about the town, from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first—a rich feast of words: short fiction, excerpts from novels, scenes from plays, poems, chants, song lyrics, cartoons, stand-up comedy, and slam. The hundreds of authors range from world-famous to locally beloved to unknown. Also available in hardcover here.
Editors: Gavan Daws and Bennett Hymer
