Abstract
 
Description
"In the tradition of the old country, the humble yet proud Jiro leaves his Waipahu plantation and journeys to Los Angeles, hopeful of living out his years in contentment with his son's family.

But from the moment the retired widower gets off the plane at the bustling metropolitan airport, he meets with a bewildering medley of adventures, both comic and tragic, that combine to compose an intimate and moving portrait of one man's efforts to salvage some meaning and dignity from life as he finds himself growing old in a world he doesn't understand.

East in conflict with West, the present in conflict with tradition, and tolerance at odds with narrowness: 'Pineapple White' speaks gently to the temper of our times"--From front book flap.
