Sayonara Slam by Naomi Hirahara Part Three
We discuss chapters 12-16 of Naomi Hirahara’s Sayonara Slam. After warming our hearts with this personal, cozy tale, how does the mystery of Yuki’s death hold up towards the end. Loose evidence, and a police-procedural approach to the narrative have Flex and Herds skeptical of the game, but the narrative keeps it strong. As each of our suspects is resolved and their true motivations revealed, will the lessons push Mas to reach back out to Genessee? We also speak to Eastlake Dojo’s Tony Arashiro about his experience bringing Okinawan culture to San Diego through their Ryuei Ryu style.
