"We first met Naomi in Obasan, a deeply moving novel in which Joy Kogawa explored the Japanese Canadian wartime experience through the girl's very young eyes. Canada's betrayal of Japanese Canadian citizens during the 1940s fractured that community, and it never fully healed. The child Naomi, too was terribly wounded. Itsuka tells another story, one of profound hope, extrodinary commitment, and the fragile progress of love." From the bookjacket.

Review: ItsukaUser Review - Vionna - Goodreads
A very interesting novel about the Japanese Canadians fight for redress after World War II. Her writing can be very poetic at time and she developed her characters very well. Read full review

I highly recommend Joy Kogawa's novels, Obasan and Itsuka. Both novels are beautifully written and tell such a powerful narrative of the Japanese Canadian internment experience and the struggle of redress. Read full review
