by John Okada
No-No Boy tells the gripping tale of Ichiro Yamada, a young man who, like many Japanese-Americans, refuses to denounce his Japanese heritage and fight for the US Army during the Second World War. His decisions force him to spend four long years in an internment camp and then in prison. On his release, he struggles to reconcile the beliefs that led to his imprisonment with a radically changed postwar America. This is a powerful novel that raises timely questions of identity, heritage and assimilation.
