Alan Brennertis the author ofMoloka’i, which was a 2006-2007 BookSense Reading Group Pick and won the 2006 Bookies Award, sponsored by the Contra Costa Library, for the Book Club Book of the Year. It appeared on the BookSense,Los Angeles Times,San Francisco Chronicle,Honolulu Advertiser, and NCIBA bestseller lists. Alan has also won an Emmy Award for his work as a writer-producer on the television seriesL.A. Lawand a Nebula Award for his story “MaQui.” He lives in Sherman Oaks, California.“In Korea in those days, newborn girls were not deemed important enough to be graced with formal names, but were instead given nicknames, which often reflected the parents’ feelings on the birth of a daughter:  I knew a girl named Anger, and another called Pity.  As for me, my parents named me Regret.”Honoluluis the rich, unforgettable story of a young “picture bride” who journeys to Hawai'i in 1914 in search of a better life.Instead of the affluent young husband and chance at an education that she has been promised, she is quickly married off to a poor, embittered laborer who takes his frustrations out on his new wife. Renaming herself Jin, she makes her own way in this strange land, finding both opportunity and prejudice. With the help of three of her fellow picture brides, Jin prospers along with her adopted city, now growing from a small territorial capital into the great multicultural city it is today.  But paradise has its dark side, whether it’s the daily struggle for survival in Honolulu’s tenements, or a crime that will become the most infamous in the islands’ history...With its passionate knowledge of people and places in Hawai'i far off the tourist track,Honoluluis most of all the spellbinding tale of four women in a new world, united by dreams, disappointment, sacrifices, and friendship.  PRAISE FORHonolulu,winner ofElle’s Lettres 2009 Grand Prix for Fiction:“A sweeping, meticulously researched saga that sees it plucky heroine, a mistreated but independent-minded Korean mail-order bride, through the highs and lows of life in twentieth-century Hawai’i, this book extends our readers’ tradition of favoring lush, flavorful historical novels.” –Elle “A well-researched and deftly written tale….For sheer readability, it's a hit…. Brennert has a good eye for places we can't see anymore: plantation life before the unions gained power; Chinatown when it was all tenements; Waikiki before the high-rises started going up. And it's clear he has real affection for the little people and places he so vividly brings to life. He's not just using historic Honolulu as a place to set a novel; he's bringing it to life for people who haven't had the chance to imagine it before.” –HonoluluStar-Bulletin “To its core,Honoluluis meticulously researched….Brennert portrays the Aloha State's history as complicated and dynamic—not simply a melting pot, but a Hawaiian-style ‘mixed plate’ in which, as Jin sagely notes, ‘many different tastes share the plate, but none of them loses its individual flavor, and together they make up a uniquely “local” cuisine.’” –The Washington Post    “Successful historical fiction doesn't just take a story and doll it up with period detail. It plunges readers into a different world… (lisätietoja)
