Book Cover for: Bonsai, Sandy Nicolson


Sandy Nicolson

They know him by his nickname only. That is about all they know about Bonsai. To most people, he is a complete nobody.

The strange guy that runs the gas station on the edge of town. The town being Salinas in the valley. It's a dinosaur of a gas station, slipping in all ways into the ground, a symbol of a bygone time, like him. History.

But this is not the full story.

And contrary to everyone's assumption, Bonsai is like any of us, actually quite remarkable.

This is his story. The former driver to a Japanese Yakuza, an inveterate gambler, an Asian American immigrant, a devout father. In a strange series of events his remarkable past comes suddenly back into his reality, and forces him to resolve lots of unfinished business in his life. He learns that there is life left to celebrate even though, like any of us, he is not fully in control of his destiny. But maybe his dreams will come true and he will be reunited with his daughter? her mother would be too much to ask ofcourse.

It's a page turning, life affirming ride and you will pity the fool that entered his gas station and didn't take a second look at him in their rear view mirror.
