Interview with Suzanne Kamata

Suzanne Kamata is the editor of Call Me Okaasan: Adventures in Multicultural Mothering. This is a thought-provoking anthology written by mothers from across the world (including me!) which I reviewed on this blog in May.

Suzanne is a fascinating person. She lives in rural Japan with her Japanese husband and bicultural twins and writes to “keep herself sane”. On her blog, Gaijin Mama, you can read about her every day struggles to comply with the rigors of Japanese life.

The Weekly Telegraph asked me to interview Suzanne and the feature is published this week. I asked Suzanne about the concept of “home”, her reasons for blogging and whether her Japanese in-laws approved of her first novel...
