There's so much passionate rage in this seventh volume of the Barefoot Gen series. The narrative is really coming together and losses this late in the story are so much more heartfelt. Though I'm sure there are more struggles in store for Gen, as well as his family and friends, I have hopes that in the last three volumes, trials will be broken up by a growing display of hope and love.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"By volume seven, Gen has grown old enough to think about the legacy of the victims of the atomic bombing. Picking up from volume six, the story opens with Gen searching for a printer willing to publish an eyewitness account of the bombing written by 'Papa,' the journalist who serves as a father figure to Gen's war orphan friends. By hook and crook Gen and Ryuta manage to get the book printed and distributed, only to arouse the wrath of U.S. Army censors, who teach them a hard lesson about the politics of memory. Meanwhile, Gen's brother Koji returns home at last, only to find that their mother is on her deathbed" -- p. [4] of cover.… (more)
