Description

Nose Kiyasu Monogatari, An American Autobiographical History is author S. K. Nose's paean to his family and Japanese ancestors. Mr. Nose has chosen to tell his story as a Monogatari, a Japanese genre, which to him combines factual and possibly fictitious elements. With loving gratitude, Mr. Nose shares his family history-- the grandparents' arrival in America, internment of family members by the War Relocation Authority after the United States's entry into World War Two, and his father's career as an executive for the International Monetary Fund. Mr. Nose scrutinizes his own academic career, his musical and athletic accomplishments, and his diligent search for a wife. In the end, the author's education pays off in a successful career in architecture-- and he marries the woman of his dreams.S. K. Nose, whose grandparents emigrated from Japan to America, was born in Washington, D.C., and was educated at Columbia University and the University of Maryland, where he earned a Master's degree in architecture. He has worked as an architect and has has served on the board of directors of the Japanese American Citizens League. S. K. Nose has recently become an Accredited Professional with the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.show more
