Longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction It is four months after Pearl Harbour and overnight signs appear all over the United States instructing Japanese Americans to report to internment camps for the duration of the war. For one family it proves to be a nightmare of oppression and alienation. Explored from varying points of view - the mother receiving the order to evacuate; the daughter on the long train journey; the son in the desert encampment; the family's return home; and the bitter release of their father after four years in captivity - it tells of an incarceration that will alter their lives for ever. Based on a true story, Julie Otsuka's powerful, deeply humane novel tells of an unjustly forgotten episode in America's wartime history.

This book is not written to reinvent the wheel and offer up just another introduction to Buddhism. This has a fresh approach of Buddhism which does not stir up dust in areas that most people have not thought of. There are Buddhist teachers who would discuss things privately such as Buddhist views on UFOs, Adolf Hitler and the historical Jesus, but they would not give public talks or publish books on such controversal subjects. The author has the courage to do so as he bodly discusses such topics in this book.

Winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award 'A wonderful novel. I doubt I will read a funnier one, or one with more heart, this year, possibly this decade.' Angela Carter, Guardian The hero of Hanif Kureishi's first novel is Karim, a dreamy teenager, desperate to escape suburban South London and experience the forbidden fruits which the 1970s seem to offer. When the unlikely opportunity of a life in the theatre announces itself, Karim starts to win the sort of attention he has been craving - albeit with some rude and raucous results. 'One of the best comic novels of growing up, and one of the sharpest satires on race relations in this country that I've ever read.' Independent on Sunday 'Brilliantly funny. A fresh, anarchic and deliciously unrestrained novel.' Sunday Times 'A distinctive and talented voice, blithe, savvy, alive and kicking.' Hermione Lee, Independent

In thinking critically about the use of the plural first person in contemporary fiction, there seems to be a hyper-focus on pronoun usage, and though this is certainly a political decision, there seems to be potential in acknowledging the more varied ways to use 'we' as a pronoun of resistance. Using David Jauss's concept of narrative distance, this paper seeks to explore the nuanced ways embodied perspectives can be manipulated in both Joan Chase's During the Reign of the Queen of Persia and The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka. By situating both racial and feminine bodies across coalitions of difference (Morris), how can the first-person plural reflect the fracturing and intersectionality of identities? And, considering a white-washed, colonizing version of Alaskan history, one fraught with racial amnesia, what is the potential for anxieties about race, urban, and the feminine, especially in terms of the 'other' (Said)? This essay seeks to ask questions about why might a writer might choose to use the first-person plural perspective, and serves as a defense in considering how craft conversations must necessarily be bound up in issues of inequity, historical amnesia, and white settler-colonial legacies in the 'Last Frontier.'
