Through exploring her family's archive of letters and other documents, Yamashita creates a powerful dialog between herself and her past, including her family's experience in the WWII Japanese internment camps, how they reacted, how they coped, and how they moved on when they got home. More than just a memoir, this book teaches by example a new kind of relationship you can have with your familial, national, and cultural story. This is an important book.
