Kunio Yamagishi did not experience the Japanese-Canadian internment camp himself, and was born in Fukushima, Japan, and was educated in Tokyo. He then immigrated to Canada without knowing about the internment camps. He was devastated when he found out aboutit, and has suffered from ambivalence towards Canada since. Writing this novel was one of the ways he was able to reconcile that dilemma, together with the Canadian Government's official apology. His novel, The Return of a Shadow (London, Austin Macauley, 2018), is based on historical facts, but his protagonist, Eizo Osada, is fictitious. In 1930s, Eizo leaves his wife and three young sons, one of them only two years old, to come to Canada to earn money for the family back in Japan. Then Japan attacks Pearl Harbor and he is sent to an internment camp. Eizo returns to his family after 43 years in Canada, but will his family accept him? ISBN 9781786937155 PRICE C$21.95
