Angels and Trolls. Völvas and Volvos. Epic Poems and Flying Pigs. The Song of Theodore blends history and fantasy in a stand-alone sequel to the award-winning Rainbow Gardens. World War 2 has ended, but not America’s hostility toward Japanese Americans, including veterans like Teddy. He returns to his father’s neon-lit motel where he confronts prejudice while fending off a band of trolls.
