Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
A finely wrought, flawlessly written novel (New York Times Book Review), set on a small island in the Puget Sound, that is at various moments a courtroom drama, an interracial love story, and a war chronicle (San Francisco Chronicle). Guterson has fashioned something haunting and true (Pico Iyer, Time). Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award. A fall 1999 major motion picture., On San Piedro, an island of rugged, spectacular beauty in Puget Sound, a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder. Set in 1954 in the shadow of World War II, Snow Falling on Cedars is a beautifully crafted courtroom drama, love story, and war novel, illuminating the psychology of a community, the ambiguities of justice, the racism that persists even between neighbors, and the necessity of individual moral action despite the indifference of nature and circumstance.
