Synopsis

August, 1945. Japan has been defeated in WWII. The country lies in ruin. Satsuko Takara and her teenage brother Hiroshi lost their parents, and each other, during the firestorm that devastated Tokyo. Hal Lynch, a haunted U.S. reconnaissance photographer, is now a photo journalist in Japan, where he stumbles upon a shocking story and is determined to bring it to light. Osamu Maruki a dissolute writer and Satsuko's former lover, has returned from the South Pacific a broken and changed man. Their stories converge and spin outward in this dazzling debut.

About the Publisher

Europa Editions

Europa Editions

Europa Editions is an independent publisher of literary fiction, non-fiction, and high-end crime fiction based in New York and London. The company was founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri, who are also the owners and publishers of the Italian press, Edizioni E/O. The idea behind the creation of Europa Editions was to capitalize on Edizioni E/O’s deep roots in European publishing to bring fresh voices to the American and British markets and to provide quality English editions of international literature that had a distinct look and consistently high level of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate, but also to inform and enlighten.
