    In her powerful first novel, Julie Otsuka tells the story of a Japanese American family in the midst of World War II. Divided into five sections, When the Emperor Was Divine is told from the differing but connected points of view of a mother, daughter, son, and father. Because the characters remain nameless, their tale is one that is universally relatable.

    Like thousands of other Japanese Americans in the early 1940s, this family has been reclassified as enemy aliens and forced to move to an internment camp in the Utah desert. From the thin-walled barracks, barbed-wire fences, and ever-present fear and loneliness to unheralded feats of heroism, Otsuka deftly conveys the harrowing details of their experience.
