About The Book
A beautiful new limited edition paperback of Snow Falling on Cedars, published aspart of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics listIn 1954 a fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat, and a local Japanese-American man is charged with his murder. In the course of his trial, it becomes clearthat what is at stake is more than one man's guilt. For on San Piedro, memories growas thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries - memories of a charmedlove affair between a white boy and a Japanese girl; memories of land desired, paid for,and lost. Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to itsJapanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exilewhile its neighbours watched.
