Emperor's Orphans, The

From the shadows of postwar Canada and Japan to the vast Canadian prairies of the new millennium, The Emperor’s Orphans explores cultural identity through movements of place and voice. The story Sally Ito weaves is of loss and longing, restoration and recovery.  Through her voice and the voices of her family, Ito recounts a tale of journeys to and from Japan and Canada.  Along the way, she discovers startling family secrets that reveal the effects of war on her family’s lives and identities as Japanese Canadians.
