This event is free and open to the public and will take place at The Mandate Press, 1077 Main St, Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

Join author Michael Mejia for a reading and signing of his newest novel, Tokyo.

The novel opens with a fantastic, slyly comic report written by a Japanese executive, describing the anomalous bluefin tuna his company purchased at Tokyo's iconic fish market, as well as the dissolution of the executive's marriage to his Japanese-American, or Sansei, wife. But when an American writer--whose own Sansei wife was previously married to a Japanese executive--begins investigating the report's author and his claims, assisted by a mysterious Japanese correspondent the American suspects may once have been his wife's lover, identities begin to scramble until it's uncertain who is imagining who, and who is and isn't Japanese. Meanwhile, a secret plot to establish pure Japaneseness through the global distribution of genetically engineered bluefin tuna seems to be rushing toward its conclusion like a great wave.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Tokyo from The King's English.
