In this semi-autobigraphical work, Where Are The Sunflowers?, published by MerwinAsia, Kurihara Miwako, a celebrated Japanese writer/television show host/ journalist, depicts events based on her own life of two over-forty adults trying to find lasting happiness by introducing social prejudice and discrimination as the catalysts for their misery. Thus are two of Japan’s most destructive social taboos, buraku heritage and Korean ancestry, introduced in a manner which is within easy reach of any reader.
