The River of Time: A Collection of Short Stories
By Robert H. Kono.
The reader will discover a new world of history as it was lived by Japanese Americans during and after WWII – in the concentration camps, on the battlefield, and everyday life.
This collection of short stories is made up of works that dramatize the dormant and unexpressed feelings underlying the Japanese American experience and provocatively explore the possibilities inherent in human relationships. The agony of incarceration, loneliness and solitude, dedication to duty, all lead to a kind of epiphany that lies just beneath the surface of our existence.
