"Praise for Karen Tei Yamashita: "It's a stylistically wild ride, but it's smart, funny and entrancing." -NPR "Fluid and poetic as well as terrifying." -New York Times Book Review With delightful plays of voice and structure, this is literary fiction at an adventurous, experimental high point." -Kirkus "Magnificent. Intriguing." -Library Journal "This powerful, deeply felt, and impeccably researched fiction is irresistibly evocative." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) Scintillations is an excursion through the Japanese internment using archival materials from the Yamashita family as well as a series of epistolary conversations with composite characters representing a range of academic specialties. Historians, anthropologists, classicists-their disciplines, and Yamashita's engagement with them, are a way for her explore various aspects of the internment and to expand its meaning beyond her family, and our borders, to ideas of debt, forgiveness, civil rights, Orientalism, and community"-- Provided by publisher.
