The Write Stuff - Lynne Kutsukake

A third generation Japanese Canadian, Lynne Kutsusake worked as a librarian at the University of Toronto for many years, specialising in Japanese material. Her short fiction has appeared in The Dalhousie Review.
The library has just acquired her first novel, The Translation of Love. This fascinating book is set against the backdrop of post-war Tokyo. A newly repatriated Japanese-Canadian girl helps a classmate find her missing sister. Told through rich, interlocking story lines, The Translation of Love shows how war shapes the lives of the occupiers and the occupied,and how friendship and love transcends culture and borders.
