Rizzuto has won a ridiculous number of awards, including a US/Japan Creative Artist Fellowship that allowed her to research material for her novels in Hiroshima. Her third novel, Shadow Child, takes place in post-WWII Hawaii, New York in the 1970s, and 1940s Japan in flashback. It's a turbulent family story about estranged twin sisters who must discover the horrors of the past—Hiroshima and Japanese American internment.
