In this book, the great post-World War II Japanese writer and Nobel laureate in Literature, Kenzaburo Oe, offers the world his portrayal of the people of Hiroshima—a group directly affected by the horrors of atomic destruction. The book consists of a series of essays written after various trips to Hiroshima. Oe describes the lives of many individuals while offering insight into the nature of human dignity. His narrative of the experiences and recollections of people who experienced the bomb serves as an intimate and chilling reminder of the harmful consequences of nuclear war, but also illustrates the human qualities of perseverance and resilience.
