Yokahama, California, originally published in 1949, is the first published collection of short stories by a Japanese American. Set in the fictional community of Yokahama, California, Mori's work is alive with the people, gossip, humor, and legends of Japanese America in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

"Mori's superbly structured short stories are set in West Oakland for the most part, and are tender, evocative episodes of growing up as a Japanese American prior to World War II." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Mori is unafraid to let the humanity of his characters and himself shine through bravely." -The Oakland Tribune

"Originally published in 1949, and now rescued from obscurity, Yokahama California is another important Asian American work that must not be missed." -East Wind

"A unique record of Japanese American life in Northern California in the decades just before World War II, the book became one of the lost volumes of American literature...[This new edition] validates both Mori's devotion to craft and a rich phase in the life of his people." -Exploration in Sights and Sounds
