Descriptions of Selected YTHS Publications

“Autumn Loneliness. The letters of Kiyoshi & Kiyoko Tokutomi, July – December 1967”, Translated by Tei Matsushita Scott & Patricia J. Machmiller, Hardscratch Press, 2009. The Tokutomis were the founders of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society. The book contains 300 letters of those exchanged between Kiyoshi and Kiyoko during a very difficult period in their lives. In 1967 Kiyoshi had just lost his hearing due to medication he was taking for tuberculosis. He traveled to Japan for a long hospital stay to undergo treatment that would attempt to recover his hearing. Kiyoko remained in the U.S. in Japantown San Jose with their 10-year-old daughter, Yukiko. The letters reveal their deeply respectful and loving relationship, how they dealt with grief and disappointment ”individually and together” and the empathetic and steadfast way they supported each other during difficult times. The 360 page book has a selection of pictures of the Tokutomis in their early years.“Kiyoko’s Sky; The Haiku of Kiyoko Tokutomi”, translations by Patricia Machmiller and Fay Aoyagi with introduction by June Hopper Hymas, Brooks Books, 2002.

The book was awarded “Best Memoir 2010” by Bay Area Independent Book Publishers. Judge’s comments: “The letters have an engaging, lyrical quality that read not only as a document of their times, but also as a window into the spirits and souls of two young people deeply in love with each other and fully engaged in the wonder and challenge of living. . . . This little gem [is] one of those rare finds one always feels blessed to have run across—interesting and moving in a quiet way.”

“Although I did not know the Tokutomis were such significant people in the world of haiku, I still found the story of their love, their hardships, their separation, and their challenges to be presented in a way that enchanted, captivated, and fascinated me. The book is nearly impossible to put down.”
