One of my favorite essays of 2020 was Elizabeth Miki Brina's "Missing Ghosts," published in The Sun. I'm thrilled that our February 2021 nonfiction is an excerpt from her much anticipated memoir, "Speak, Okinawa," the story of growing up in upstate New York as the child of an Okinawan woman and an American soldier.
