Bruce Kamei is Japanese American, a Sansei. However, unlike the majority of Sanseis, he was born in Japan, lived in Japan, speaks the language, and knows the culture and customs. His stories are about cultural and social conflicts in being not a “real” Japanese and not being a “real” Sansei. He received his MFA from Wichita State University "a long time ago."
