A stunning combination of outstanding writing and performance, this delicately woven and touching account toggles its first-person point of view from that of our heroine, a Japanese-American videographer who lives in New York City, to that of a Japanese wife. Akiko, the wife, forms vicarious links with our heroine through harrowing and bizarre circumstances. Anna Fields flawlessly embodies all of the extreme characters in this work. Fields is a wonder as she flows from Japanese to various American accents and Japanese-inflected American. Her tour de force delivery of this feminist satire provides a refreshing dose of comedy to serious issues--meat, sex, and cultural pressure. D.J.B.
