A collection of interconnected narratives, Julie Otsuka’s richly imagined novel, The Buddha in the Attic, focuses on a group of Japanese women who come to California after World War I as “picture brides” to marry men they’ve never met. A finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, this remarkable novel is a skillful portrayal of the immigrant experience that reinforces Otsuka’s reputation as a writer to watch.
