An anthology to end all anthologies, Honolulu Stories celebrates, examines and challenges all things related to our city, as seen through 200 years’ worth of writing—and a thousand pages. It’s got everything from Mark Twain to Rap Reiplinger, plus two pieces of fiction from our predecessor, Paradise of the Pacific: 1954’s “The Irresistible Henrique,” and 1946’s “The Forgotten Flea Powder.” Mutual Publishing, $35.
We were also happy to see that a 1995 HONOLULU article, “Eddie Would Go,” has been reimagined by its author, Marion Lyman-Mersereau, as a children’s book. Eddie Wen’ Go: The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe, $17.95, is from Watermark Publishing, a sister company to HONOLULU.
