Editorial Reviews

Review

"Asian American readers will appreciate the sensitivity and integrity with which the late John Okada wrote about his own group. He heralded the beginning of an authentic Japanese American literature."―Gordon Hirabayashi, Pacific Affairs

"Nisei will recognize the authenticity of the idioms Okada's characters use, as well as his descriptions of the familiar Issei and Nisei mannerisms that make them come alive."―Bill Hosokawa, Pacific Citizen

"[This new edition] brings Okada's groundbreaking work to a new generation . . . an internee and enlisted man himself, [Okada] wrote in a raw, brutal stream of consciousness that echoes the pain and intergenerational conflict faced by those struggling to reconcile their heritage to the concept of an American dream."―Nancy Powell, Shelf Awareness

"It is both an important document of Japanese American and Pacific Northwest history and a compelling novel."―Emily Lutenski, Pacific Northwest Quarterly

About the Author

John Okada was born in Seattle in 1923. He served in the U.S. Army in World War II, attended the University of Washington and Columbia University, and died of a heart attack at the age of 47. No-No Boy is his only published novel.
