Itsuka, Joy Kogawa. Penguin, 1993. 

Vintage paperback. Some light shelfwear. No markings inside. Very good condition. 

Joy Kogawa is a Canadian poet and novelist. She considered one of the most influential Canada writers in Canadian history. Her best known work, Obasan (1981) fictionalizes the loss and suffering of Japanese internment in Canada. Itsuka is its sequel, and "follows the character Naomi Nakane into adulthood, where she becomes involved in the movement for governmental redress. Much more overtly political than Kogawa's first book, the story focuses on reaching that itsuka--someday--when the mistreatment of those of Japanese heritage during World War II would be recognized."
