內容簡介

一個因為國籍過著遭受排擠的生活,一個苦苦尋找失蹤家人,兩個小女孩悲苦的命運交織出一段跨越語言與文化的難忘的友誼

「一鳴驚人的處女之作,精彩動人,難忘的內容深深感動各年齡層的讀者。」--紐約時報最佳暢銷書《缺頁的日記》作者克里斯‧博雅里安
「作者以細膩的筆觸,真實刻劃戰敗的日本,探討複雜的自我國籍認同問題,及顛沛流離的戰後生活。」--《神秘打字員》作者蘇珊‧林道爾

因為戰爭從小生長在加拿大拘留營的13歲少女Aya,正面臨人生的重大抉擇:搬離居留營到加拿大西海岸生活或是回到從未見過的日本家鄉。為了遠離失去母親的悲傷及加拿大政府的無情驅逐,Aya與父親只好回到受到二戰摧毀的東京。為了生活Aya的父親做著超時的勞苦工作,Aya也因為出生在溫哥華的特殊身份被同學視為二等公民,每天因為無法以流利的日文溝通而遭到霸凌,這段期間老師安排調皮的Fumi照顧Aya。但Fumi心中其實也有更大的煩惱─姐姐為了生計到銀座的娛樂場所工作,最後卻離奇消失。謠傳麥克阿瑟將軍將親自前往日本監督佔領行動並幫助居民需求,Fumi為了找到姐姐請Aya寫信給麥克阿瑟將軍,但龐大的請求信件早就石沉大海,兩人決定不再尋求外界的力量,親自深入危險的銀座區尋找Fumi的姐姐。

同為加拿大籍日裔第三代的作者Lynne Kutsukake的第一本長篇小說作品,環環相扣的故事情節,深刻描繪二戰後動盪不安的日本,內容除了探討兩個小女孩的友誼與家人之愛,跨越語言及文化的界線,成功打造一段動人及淒美的戰後故事。


During the American occupation, the citizens of Japan were encouraged to apply directly to General MacArthur – “if you have a problem, write a letter, this is what democracy means” – and so write they did. MacArthur received over 500,000 letters, letters of entreaty, rage, gratitude, complaint, even adoration. 

Twelve-year-old Fumi Tanaka has a problem – her beautiful and beloved older sister, Sumiko, has disappeared. Determined to find her, Fumi enlists the help of her new classmate Aya, forcibly repatriated with her father from Canada after the war. Together, they write to MacArthur and deliver their letter into the reluctant hands of Corporal Matt Matsumoto, a Japanese-American GI whose job it is to translate the endless letters. 

When weeks pass and they hear nothing from Matt, the girls take matters into their own hands, venturing into the dark and dangerous world of the black market and dancehalls. They're unaware that their teacher, Kondo Sensei, moonlights as a translator of love letters, and that he holds the key to Sumiko's safe return.
