The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
The Buddha in the Attic

anne.pici, January 19, 2012

This book will show why we should refrain from making sweeping, general comments about people. Otsuka's genius in using "we" narrators will impress a reader with a myriad of immigrant stories.

The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
The Buddha in the Attic

anne.pici, January 19, 2012

Written with care and finesse, this book equals in effect and beauty that found in Julie Otsuka's previous novel, When the Emperor Was Divine. Its "we" narrators deliver a complex tangle of humanity during a time period of shame in our country. Images will haunt and delight the reader long after the book is closed. In fact, I went back several times after finishing the stories to examine just how Otsuka accomplishes such depth of insight.
