Letters to Memory by Karen Tei Yamashita

In this beautifully produced book, interspersed with color reproductions of letters, photographs, articles and journal entries, Yamashita mines her own family’s history to explore the Japanese American experience through World War II, the internment camps, and the rippling effects on younger generations. This is not, however, straight history, but something much more meaningful, a celebrated fiction writer considering and attempting to make sense of her family’s past and of our own. - Melinda
