"Nick Nagatani's story is a rare and colorful look into Japanese American life seen through a journey that eventually spans three continents and several generations. Starting with immigration from Japan, it examines family life, world wars and discrimination at home to resettlement, before it moves onto street life, another war- the Vietnam War- youth culture and struggles for justice and activism in the Asian American movement.

"Like the characters in his book, Nick Nagatani does not pull any punches. He writes with brutal honesty about subjects that even many in our own community refuse to acknowledge; issues such as racism, gang violence, drug abuse, police brutality, lack of support to returning Vietnam vets, and the advent of Asian American activism. He gives us a lesson on a part of Japanese American history that until now has been largely forgotten or ignored. Like the OGs back in the day, Nick never just talked the talk. He has always walked the walk, with great pride, love and soul. I can't wait for the movie version!" -Eddie Kochiyama
