You can always count on a crowd outside Heads by Harry, the Yagyuu family's taxidermy shop in Hilo, where the regulars gather every day to drink beer, eat smoked meat, and pontificate into the pau hana hours. But above the shop, where the family lives, life isn't so predictable. Toni Yagyuu, the middle child, has enough on her hands dealing with her budding diva of a little sister. But it is the men in her life that really have her running in circles: a flamboyant older brother who wants to be a hairdresser, a stubborn father who refuses to accept her into the family business, and the Santos brothers—-two pig-hunting, ex-high school football players who don't know what to think of their headstrong, outspoken neighbor.

Anderson Tepper

Yamanaka's voice is a welcome breeze, refreshingly real even when disturbing. Heads by Harry is Yamanaka at the peak of her vibrant, soul-baring yet self-mocking style. -- Time Out New York
