Description

From the award-winning author of The Electrical Field comes this riveting story of love, guilt, and complicity in the context of war. Miyo and her father, Masao, live a reclusive life together in Toronto, as they have since Miyo's mother died in childbirth. When her father dies, Miyo learns that years before he had secretly married and had another child. Driven to discover what else he may have hidden, Miyo travels to Tokyo to meet Hana, her half-sister. She finds herself drawn into Hana's obsession with learning their father's war history-and is shocked to learn that he was a kamikaze pilot. How did he come back alive when only death bestowed honor on a kamikaze? What did he do to survive?
Sakamoto skillfully weaves larger questions of guilt and obligation into an intimate, suspenseful account of a young woman and a country both confronting themselves.
