Tracy Slater explains in The Good Shufu: Finding Love, Self, and Home on the Far Side of the World  that shufu means “housewife” in Japanese and that was the last thing she thought she’d call herself. She was a writer and academic with a carefully constructed and fiercely independent life in Boston.
