[EAN: 9781566890168], Neubuch, [PU: Coffee House Press], KAREN TEI YAMASHITA,LITERARY,UNITED STATES,ASIA,LATIN AMERICAN, Fiction|Horror|Black Humor, Fiction|Humorous|Absurdity, Paperback. 248 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.8in. x 0.8in.From Japanese-American writer Yamashita: a story of Japanese emigration set, like her first novel (Through the Arc of the Rain Forest, 1990), in Brazil. A range of characters, male and female, tell about a particular group of Japanese who emigrated to Brazil in the first decades of this century. Christian, well-educated, and reasonably affluent, they sought to establish communities where Christian and Japanese values could flourish. The group prospered, though not without cost, and it is this cost thats a major theme here. A secondary theme, suggested by the quotes from the philosopher Rousseau that precede each section, is the nature of education in a new world where emigrants children often have only natural and purely physical knowledge. Young Emile begins with his recollections of his 1925 arrival in Brazil as a small child; the uncomfortable journey to the settlement where families already there helped them clear land; and the hard work required to become self-sufficient. But even the most idealistic communities have problems, and, successively, Emile, Haru, Kantaro, and Genji, over the years, record the events and personalities that threatened the group: Kantaro, the visionary and dilettante, whose enterprises from baseball to chicken-farming had unforeseen consequences; the bitter divisions caused by WW I that led to the murder of an original founder; the effects of the enduring passion of Yergo for Haru; and the increased assimilation with neighboring Brazilians. Paradoxically, assimilated Guillerme notes in an epilogue that thousands of unemployed Japanese-Brazilians are currently working in Japan as menial labor. Though often seeming more a work of reportage than a novel, Yamashitas characters are vital, full-bodied creations offering sufficient balance, as well as answers to the questions raised. Informative and timely. -Kirkus This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Brazil-Maru

Fiction. Karen Tei Yamashita's eagerly anticipated second novel tells the little-known story of Brazil's huge Japanese immigrant population. This multi-generational saga relates one group's attempt to build a utopia while surviving the suspicions of World War Two, the conflict between individual freedom and community responsibility, and the dangerous allure of a charismatic leader.
