Written by acclaimed mystery writer Naomi Hirahara, Mamo’s Weeds tells the story of a gardener besieged by a destructive weed epidemic and a series of phone calls from a mysterious woman. Searching for answers, he travels from the Southern California Gardeners’ Federation to a Little Tokyo chop-suey house to the lawns of Japanese American neighborhoods, only to discover that the weeds are keys to both his past and future.
