Product Details


“Brilliant . . . Spectacular and troubling and topical . . . Filled with charged moments and observations.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air

“A daring book . . . A close literary kin to Richard Wright’s Native Son . . . There is no other novel like it about Japanese Americans in the postwar period. . . . A cautionary tale . . . of the incarceration of immigrant families based on racial prejudice, executive privilege, and the false assertion of military necessity . . . Over a half century later, Okada’s novel challenges us once again with the question of character, asking us, as individuals and as a society, what are we made of.” —Karen Tei Yamashita, from the Introduction
