Though I am not a member of a book club, I have already recommended this book to several people who are, because I think there are so many issues to delve into, that come out of this reading. First and foremost, of course, is the story of the relocation of Japanese Canadians during the war. Living in the area of British Columbia where many of the relocation camps were situated, and working with many people who went through that process, that has always been an area of great interest and concern for me. But many who lived the experience are reluctant to relive it. And so, though the details of the relocation were familiar, the feelings that Itani evoked in its telling, were new to me. But equally evocative were her stories around families, and especially the relationship of men with their sons. Though the telling of the story here, might have had some specifically Japanese aspects to it, it talked a lot about my relationships as a father, and I was surprised at Itani's insights into these male relationships. Equally evocative also, were her stories about a man, grieving the loss of a wife. Being in that process, I kept thinking she must have had that experience too, because it seems to me that, only someone who had experienced it, could describe it as she did. My one problem with the book was the ending, which seemed too facile. But since it brought a good resolution, I can forgive her that.

Requiem is a disturbing read of man's inhumanity towards others, all the more shameful because it happened in Canada. Emotions during war time are readily inflamed into enmity, racism and greed. The Japanese-Canadians along Canada's Pacific coast bore the brunt of this hysteria, their properties confiscated and forced into internment camps; a sad indictment of Canadian society at a stressful time.
The story takes a twist inside the camps. Resilient internees strive to make the best of a bad situation. They persevere. Strengths of human character and family ties shine through. When peace returns, they pursue with renewed vigour their rightful place in society.
The novel's portrayal of a family caught up in this drama is memorable.

I would recommend this to anyone who would like to know about the internment. I didn't know very much about it so it was a learning experience - well written and easy to read.
