Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Bin Okuma goes on a journey, crossing Canada east to west, revisiting a past that includes his experience as a Japanese internee, following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, pushed inland from his family home in a coastal fishing village. He is also grieving for his wife Lena who has recently died and preparing for an exhibit of his paintings. Itani’s beautiful prose carries a book that lags in plot until about halfway through. It is very much like a requiem. {Listening to Beethoven while you read is completely appropriate!] It is very like reading a recent bestseller, Per Petterson’s Out Stealing Horses. I liked her novel Deafening more.
