Silence to Light

On the sixtieth anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, Silence to Light illuminates the tumultuous period, and the aftermath, of World War II and the war in Asia. Through fiction, memoirs, film scripts, poetry, photography, and manga (Japanese cartoons), the volume brings to light the personal and communal memories that have disappeared into silence. Readers get a new and vivid perspective on such events as the Manchurian Incident, the rape of Nanking, Japanese American internment, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The authors include well-known Japanese figures, such as Yukio Mishima and Dazai Osamu, and such contemporary authors as Hayashi Kyoko, Choko Ishigaki, and Keiji Nakazawa. American authors adding their perspective include Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Donald Richie, and Gladys Swan. Work by Linda Gregg, Martha Zweig, and other American authors is also included.
