Black Warrior Review of 'In the Woods of Memory' by Shun Medoruma
Black Warrior Review just wrote a comprehensive review of renowned Okinawan writer Shun Medoruma's novel In the Woods of Memory, eloquently asserting that "Medoruma asks after not only the lives of survivors, but also after the half-life of trauma, to measure how long it echoes."
Here's a snippet of what they have to say:
"This is a novel about war, about history, about rape, yes. But more importantly it is about the synthesis of all of these subjects, the moments of intersection: of individual and collective traumas, memory and community, language and history."
