Nisei Daughter

















Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Monica Sone ( Kimi in Betty MacDonald's The Plague and I )  is the author of Nisei Daughter. 

Monica Sone and her family had run a hotel in Seattle before Executive Order 9066 sent all West Coast Japanese Americans into exile.

With charm, humor, and deep understanding, a Japanese American woman tells how it was to grow up on Seattle's waterfront in the 1930s and to be subjected to "relocation" dring World War II. Along with some 120,000 other persons of Japanese ancestry-77,000 of whom were U.S. citizens-she and her family were uprooted from their home and imprisoned in a camp. 


In this book, first published in 1953, she provides a unique personal account of these experiences.

"Monica Sone's account of life in the relocation camps is both fair and unsparing. It is also deeply touching, and occasionally hilarious."-New York Herald Tribune

"The deepest impression that this unaffected, honest little story made on me was of smiling courage."-San Francisco Chronicle

Wolfgang Hampel, Monica Sone's friend -  author of Betty MacDonald biography and winner of first Betty MacDonald Memorial Award - wrote:

Dearest Monica,

I was rereading your book Nisei Daughter and I have to tell you that I agree with your many international fans. I wished I could read many more books written by great author and unique personality Monica Sone.

I also agree with the New York Herald Tribune review of Nisei Daughter: Monica Sone's account of life in the relocation camps is both fair and unsparing. It is also deeply touching, and occasionally hilarious.

Yes, that's it! Deeply touching, also occassionally hilarious! When I'm reading your great book ( Nisei Daughter belong to the VERY few books I'm reading over and over again ) I'm really deeply touched. I'm with you and your great family. I adore your outstanding book and even much more I adore your unique personality. You are a genius but very human and warm with a deep understanding and a golden heart.

The first time I heard your very warm voice I was lost. To me it's the most beautiful voice in the whole world. Voice and personality fit together in just a perfect way.

Thanks a million for your friendship.

Although we are far away you and your family are always in our thoughts. 


All our love,

Wolfgang


Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Monica Sone will be included in Wolfgang Hampel's new project 'Vita Magica'.

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

I adore William Cumming's outstanding artwork but it's too expensive for my budget. 


His description of Betty MacDonald's character is a masterpiece.

William Cumming was a very good friend of Betty MacDonald fan club founder Wolfgang Hampel.
 

Both - Betty MacDonald and Wolfgang Hampel have the most wonderful friends.

I'm a bit jealous because I  would like to have friends like Betty MacDonald fan club honor members Mr. Tigerli and our beloved 'italian' Betty MacDonald, artist and author Letizia Mancino.

William Cumming is part of Wolfgang Hampel's new project 'Vita Magica'. 

Wolfgang Hampel's stories and satirical poems will be published in several languages for his many fans from all  over the world.

I hate dictators in politics and in my private life because they are stupid and childish. 

We should laugh about them but sometimes it's very difficult to do this.

‘ON TOP OF THE WORLD’


George One had been staring down at the Earth for a little while before he realised something was different.

But what?

Squinting, he concentrated on the big space telescope, the one that was always aimed directly at him. Well, at him and Mr. Estimet, he corrected, because whatever was different seemed to lay there.

‘Ah!’ he exclaimed, as his eyes focussed. ‘That’s it. There’s a new person on the telescope, Mr. Estimet.’

Mr. Estimet, who had also been looking down at the Earth, gently rocking backwards and forwards on his heels, suddenly came to life.

‘A new person, George?’

George zoomed in on the new person and read her name badge.

‘Tilly,’ he announced. ‘Tilly Moffat. Haven’t seen HER before.’

George and Mr. Estimet knew all the people who worked on the big telescope. They knew the ones who got excited about any little change in the Universe, just as they knew the ones who remained calm, even a touch aloof when a new star was spotted, or a new asteroid, or a new anything come to that.

George smiled.

Sometimes, just for the fun of it, he would throw a scrap of foil through the observation window, chortling at the sudden burst of activity below.

Hardly worth a moment’s amusement, though, he admitted, because then he had to go out and get it back and that wasn’t easy, not with the pulling and tugging of all those gravitational fields swooping and soaring around him.

Felt as if he’d been dragged through a force field backwards by the time he’d finished.

But there you are, as Mr. Estimet always said, there was enough junk from the earth cluttering the cosmos without him adding to it.

Now here was Tilly Moffat and George had no idea how she would respond.

‘And that,’ Mr. Estimet pointed out, ‘is because she hasn’t been behind the telescope before. Wasn’t it Zachariah Bumble before Tilly?’

Then Mr. Estimet also closed up on Tilly Moffat.

‘Looks quite pleasant,’ he observed, ‘for a person.’

George was not convinced.

‘Hmmm. Pleasant until she buys a great big field and builds a great big house on it with no regard for the non-humans who were there first.’

‘Now, now, George,’ Mr. Estimet began, then let it go.

His own eyes shifted from Tilly Moffat back to the earth. He could see snow falling in parts of that little world down there and he totally loved snow.

Adored it, really.

Why, if there was anything that could make him volunteer for the very next stint on earth as an observer, it would be snow.

There was no snow on their planet, no misty mornings, no blue seas and golden sands, no anything, really.

‘You know,’ he began, ‘despite all the things they do wrong…’

‘Which is practically everything,’ George put in.

Mr. Estimet stopped him.

‘I know, George, I know, but on the other hand, they do have a capacity for love.’

George One almost snorted.

Love, he thought. They had a capacity for love all right when they drowned the sea in oil and chemicals, when they chopped down the rain forests, when they polluted the air and chucked things into space without a thought for those living there.

But all he said was, ‘Really? They have a capacity for love? Are you sure about that, Mr. Estimet?’

‘Well, look at what some of them do,’ Mr. Estimet began. ‘Some try to save the whale and the tiger. Quite a lot of them are trying to save the world. Yes, yes,’ he held up a hand as George One’s mouth opened, ‘I know much of it is self-interest to avoid extinction but not all of it, George. Many of them, for example, work for peace and, most promising, millions of them care about people they don’t even know.’

George thought about this. Nope, he couldn’t believe any of these things but then, Mr. Estimet always had been a wishful thinker, although he denied it.

‘I’m not a wishful thinker so much as a hopeful energy source,’ he would say, ‘just like some of those people on earth.’

Now, he smiled.

‘Can you see those trees?’ he asked.

George looked down.

‘You mean the few they’ve got left,’ he retorted tersely.

‘No,’ Mr. Estimet’s voice was gentle. ‘I mean the trees with stars on them.’

‘Stars?’

‘Stars.’

There was silence for a moment as both George and Mr. Estimet winkled out the star dressed trees.

‘Hmmm,’ George murmured. ‘Very pretty.’

Mr. Estimet glanced at him.

‘Pretty?’ he repeated, and George blushed.

‘I know it’s an earth word,’ he said defensively, ‘but it happens to be one I like.’

‘And why not,’ Mr. Estimate smiled. Then, ‘Well, George, those trees are called Christmas trees. No, don’t ask me why. I have no idea. All I know is that they do this to them every year and what I thought was, we could put a Christmas tree on top of our planet to show the earth that we quite like them.’

‘At the moment,’ he added.

Ignoring the last remark, George said, ‘Wouldn’t it have to be an extraordinarily big tree?’

‘It would.’ Mr. Estimet’s agreement was instant. ‘But we can do that. We can put a Christmas tree in space with a star on its top branch.’

‘How about the North Star,’ George suggested. ‘That’s the brightest star we’ve got.’

Mr. Estimet shook his head.

‘Better not. They’ll get a bit miffed down there if the North Star suddenly disappears.’

When it was ready, George and Mr. Estimet sent their particle Christmas tree roaring into the silence of the Universe.

It was enormous.

‘Bite bare,’ George said thoughtfully, balancing the North Star on the tip of the tree, whipping a long strand of the Milky Way out of place then

draping it artistically over the branches so that the tree sparkled and shone.

For a moment, the whole Universe shuddered until Mr. Estimet put the strand back almost as fast as George had removed it.

‘Sorry,’ George said.

Other stars were fastened to the tree along with two or three glittering comets put on for a bit of interest and they were having a fine old time until George noticed Tilly Moffat staring up at them.

‘She can see the tree,’ he said.

‘Yes,’ Mr. Estimet nodded. ‘She can.’

The response was immediate from the little world below them and when George spelt out ‘HAPPY CHRISTMAS’ in very small stars, hanging them on the tree in place of the bit of the Milky Way that had been there before, Zachariah Bumble and the whole of the telescope team crowded around Tilly Moffat to stare at the Christmas tree floating in space.

‘Happy Christmas, George,’ said Mr. Estimet, holding the Universe steady as George carefully took down the North Star and put it back where he had found it.

In the deep still silence, George said, ‘Happy Christmas, Mr. Estimet,’ and glancing down at Tilly Moffat’s shining eyes, added one more word to his banner of stars.

‘HAPPY CHRISTMAS, WORLD.’

And to Mr. Estimet’s surprise, this time, George meant it.

Donald MacDonald, Wolfgang Hampel

Hi this is Nena,

I enjoyed Wolfgang Hampel's very special birthday greetings to Monica Sone.

Happy birthday, dear Betty MacDonald Fan Club Honour member, Monica Sone.
Nisei Daughter is one of my favourite books.

As Wolfgang Hampel mentioned it's very sad that Monica Sone is a one book-author.
I'd love to read more Monica Sone books because her writing is excellent.
Nisei Daughter is so very touching.
Something comes in my mind. Can you remember what Betty MacDonald's sister Mary Bard Jensen said about one book authors in Betty MacDonald's Anybody can do anything?

Speaking of special birthday anniversaries, what about Betty MacDonald's husband Donald MacDonald?
Donald Chauncey MacDonald was born Sept. 2, 1910, in Council Bluffs, Iowa 100 years ago. He died in 1975 at the age of only 65 in Monterey.

I'm working on a story about Donald Chauncey MacDonald with many facts, information and photos for Betty MacDonald Newsletter.

In Wolfgang Hampel's wonderful Betty MacDonald interviews Betty MacDonald's beloved sister Alison Bard Burnett and many other relatives and friends tell the most interesting memories of Donald Chauncey MacDonald. I hope these interviews will be published soon.

Wolfgang Hampel's new Betty MacDonald documentary of Betty MacDonald's life in Boulder, Butte, Seattle, Laurelhurst, Chimacum, Vashon Island, Carmel and Carmel Valley is really fascinating. My personal favourites are scenes of Betty's and Don's life in Carmel and Carmel Valley.

I hope that Betty MacDonald's filmed interview will be available soon. Where are the Mike Gordons, Bill Gates and Dagobert Ducks? Help us, please.

Wolfgang Hampel's satirical poems and stories are delightful and so very witty. It's a very good idea to offer a special CD and DVD of Wolfgang Hampel's work.

I've read Gwen Grant's PRIVATE! KEEP OUT. A very funny book!
Gwen Grant is a wonderful writer.

I adore Darsie Beck's beautifully written childhood memories of Vashon Island.
Therefore I'm also very interested in reading Darsie Beck's book. I'd appreciate some more info about Darsie Beck's book and artwork.

As I love Betty MacDonald's Nancy and Plum and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle they will be the subject of one of my next stories for Betty MacDonald Fan Club Newsletter.

Everybody is talking about next Betty MacDonald Fan Club Honory member. I only know it's a famous artist and writer and President of a worldfamous Society. Who is it? I can't wait any longer.

Bye for now and enjoy your weekend!

Monica Sone's birthday, Wolfgang Hampel

I'm Margit,

Dear Monica Sone and Betty MacDonald Fan Club Fans,

Betty MacDonald Fan Club Honour Member Monica Sone celebrates her 91th birthday today.
Monica Sone is the author of Nisei Daughter. Monica Sone and her family had run a hotel in Seattle before Executive Order 9066 sent all West Coast Japanese Americans into exile.

http://www.washington.edu/uwpress/search/books/SONNIS.html

With charm, humor, and deep understanding, a Japanese American woman tells how it was to grow up on Seattle's waterfront in the 1930s and to be subjected to "relocation" dring World War II. Along with some 120,000 other persons of Japanese ancestry-77,000 of whom were U.S. citizens-she and her family were uprooted from their home and imprisoned in a camp. In this book, first published in 1953, she provides a unique personal account of these experiences.

"Monica Sone's account of life in the relocation camps is both fair and unsparing. It is also deeply touching, and occasionally hilarious."-New York Herald Tribune

"The deepest impression that this unaffected, honest little story made on me was of smiling courage."-San Francisco Chronicle

Wolfgang Hampel, Monica Sone's friend, author of Betty MacDonald biography, winner of first Betty MacDonald Memorial Award sent his very special birthday wishes:

Copyright 2010 by Wolfgang Hampel

Dearest Monica,

we are so very happy to hear that you are well again and wish you a wonderful birthday today. A Million Times good health and all the best!

I was rereading your book Nisei Daughter and I have to tell you that I agree with your many international fans. I wished I could read many more books written by great author and unique personality Monica Sone.

I also agree with the New York Herald Tribune review of Nisei Daughter: Monica Sone's account of life in the relocation camps is both fair and unsparing. It is also deeply touching, and occasionally hilarious.

Yes, that's it! Deeply touching, also occassionally hilarious! When I'm reading your great book ( Nisei Daughter belong to the VERY few books I'm reading over and over again ) I'm really deeply touched. I'm with you and your great family. I adore your outstanding book and even much more I adore your unique personality. You are a genius but very human and warm with a deep understanding and a golden heart.

The first time I heard your very warm voice I was lost. To me it's the most beautiful voice in the whole world. Voice and personality fit together in just a perfect way.

2010 was a very successful year for Monica Sone and Betty MacDonald Fan Club.

Linde Lund and her Betty MacDonald Fan Club Event Team organized the Monica Sone and Betty MacDonald Fan Club Royal Wedding Event in Stockholm with many Monica Sone and Betty MacDonald fans from five continents.

They saw the swedish royal wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling.
Victoria is the eldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, and belongs to the Royal House of Bernadotte. Born as a Princess of Sweden, she was designated Crown Princess in 1979 ahead of her younger brother.

Monica Sone and Betty MacDonald Fan Club sent a wedding present, books written by unique Monica Sone, Betty MacDonald and some Betty MacDonald Interviews by me, Wolfgang Hampel.
When I heard it I was very amazed. What do you think about this, dear Monica?
I hope Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling will enjoy it very much.

Thanks A Million for your friendship.

Although we are far away you and your family are always in our thoughts.

Many hugs and greetings especially from Master Peter to great Lady Monica.

Darling Peter said to me: Monica seems to get younger and younger and you are getting older and older. Before you look like an ooooolllllddd Wolf and act like a grandpa you should better ask Monica, what her secret is. Perhaps she might be able to help you. So Monica help me please, will you? It's really urgent. I'm awaiting your instructions.

We have a Royal Wedding Weather today with lots of sunshine. The sky is so blue and there are no clouds in the sky.

We wish you'll have the same 'Queensweather' and the most wonderful birthday ever.

All our love

Wolfgang, Angelika and Peter -
your old Wolf and your many fans worldwide
