Book Description

Nov. 1 2003 Native Storiers
Hiroshima Bugi is an ingenious kabuki novel that begins in the ruins of the Atomic Bomb Dome, a new Rashomon Gate. Ronin Browne, the humane peace contender, is the hafu orphan son of Okichi, a Japanese boogie-woogie dancer, and Nightbreaker, an Anishinaabe from the White Earth Reservation who served as an interpreter for General Douglas MacArthur during the first year of the American occupation in Japan.
 
Ronin draws on samurai and native traditions to confront the moral burdens and passive notions of nuclear peace celebrated at the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima. He creates a new calendar that starts with the first use of atomic weapons, Atomu One. Ronin accosts the spirits of the war dead at Yasukuni Jinga. He then marches into the national shrine and shouts to Tojo Hideki and other war criminals to come out and face the spirits of thousands of devoted children who were sacrificed at Hiroshima.
 
In Hiroshima Bugi: Atomu 57 acclaimed Anishinaabe writer Gerald Vizenor has created a dynamic meditation on nuclear devastation and our inability to grasp fully its presence or its legacy

Product Description

Review

“Vizenor is at full speed in Hiroshima Bugi. This book is a natural dance of concepts. Vizenor does for Native literature what James Joyce does for Irish literature in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake."—Diane Glancy, author of Designs of the Night Sky
(Diane Glancy)

"Vizenor has a reputation for taking chances with his novels, for pushing the form in new directions. He outdoes himself in his latest. . . . Readers who have shared other adventures with Vizenor will not be disappointed."—Library Journal


"Mapping the realms that matter to transformations of consciousness is one order of business; evoking transformative visionary presence is another. Transpersonal explorations of issues of identity and peace require not just orientation but also evocation. There is no better introduction to these issues than the challenges that Gerald Vizenor's latest fiction, Hiroshima Bugi, poses to transpersonal thinking."—
Jurgen W. Kremer, ReVision
