Beautiful & haunting.

Reminds me of the sign & mural (by artist Aki Sogabe) at the Pike Place Market in Seattle:

In 1941 approximately two-thirds
of the farmer's stalls in the
Pike Place Market were occupied
by Japanese Americans.

Today none.


Editorial Review from Amazon.com

This is the kind of book where you can smell and hear and see the fictional world the writer has created, so palpably does the atmosphere come through. Set on an island in the straits north of Puget Sound, in Washington, where everyone is either a fisherman or a berry farmer, the story is nominally about a murder trial. But since it's set in the 1950s, lingering memories of World War II, internment camps and racism helps fuel suspicion of a Japanese-American fisherman, a lifelong resident of the islands. It's a great story, but the primary pleasure of the book is Guterson's renderings of the people and the place.
