When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka
When the Emperor Was Divine

bshinn, January 5, 2012

This short book brings immediacy to the internment of Japanese during World War II. It centers on one family and the impact this internment had on their lives over the years. It is a very powerful portrayal of how national policy impacts individuals. I highly recommend this short book.
