"The Other" Immigrant Experience

New America Now, Audio, Sandip Roy Posted: Apr 14, 2010


Editor's Note: The waves of Japanese immigration to the United States have receded compared to the Chinese and Mexican. As a result, the Japanese-American story has had a reduced presence in immigrant fiction. But their story, from the fields of Hawaii to internment camps in Arkansas, remains one of the most poignant stories of the immigrant experience. No one else has known more bitterly what it means to be the "other," whether behind barbed wire in America, or in POW camps in Asia. John Hamamura has written a sweeping novel about that experience, Color of the Sea.
