Winner of the prestigious 1999 Whiting Writers’ Award, Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls by Naomi Iizuka is a hilarious romp that follows young Generation X-ers in their quest for love and identity. Strangers, friends, lovers, and acquaintances travel the globe from Alaska to Hawaii and from New York City to Inner Borneo in this wild comedy. A woman moves to Alaska after being dumped by her boyfriend. A writer struggles to write the Great American Novel. A businessman misses his flight and ends up on the beaches of Hawaii. Oh yeah, and there’s a hula dancer, an Incan mummy, a man that becomes a Komodo dragon, and a dog that becomes a man.
