Karin Tanabe’s fourth novel explores the experience of Japanese and German internees in the U.S. during World War II, set against the experience of foreign detainees in Japan.

She deliberately focuses on less-explored stories such as the 11,000 Germans interned alongside the Japanese, the village of Karuizawa in Japan where many foreign citizens were detained during the war, and occupied Shanghai, which became an unlikely refuge for Jews who escaped east from Europe.
