“Brilliant . . . Spectacular and troubling and topical . . . Filled with charged moments and observations.” — Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air “Groundbreaking . . . Only fiction has the power to ask the questions that bring the past to life. [John Okada] has done that. . . . In this way, with this one book, [he] has served to rectify the world.” — Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being “Iconic . . . Thinking back to writers like . . . John Okada, it is clear that genius is too often unrecognized in its day.” — Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sympathizer, in an op-ed for The New York Times “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
