Itsuka by Joy Kogawa

Book Description

Profoundly political, exquisitely intimate, Itsuka reverberates with longing and hope. The Canada Times Already a Canadian bestseller, the sequel to Joy Kogawa s award-winning novel Obasan follows the character Naomi Nakane into adulthood, where she becomes involved in the movement for governmental redress. Much more overtly political than Kogawa s first book, the story focuses on reaching that itsuka someday when the mistreatment of those of Japanese heritage during World War II would be recognized. Although during the war both the United States and Canada interned Japanese-Americans and confiscated their property, when the war ended the property of those in Canada never returned to them. This is thestory of the fight to get government compensation for the thousands of victims of the wartime internment, which was, unbelievably, only accomplished in 1988. Both a moving novel of self-discovery and a fascinating historical account of the fight for redress, Itsuka ends with a message of inspiration and hope."
