Summary
During the American occupation, the citizens of Japan were encouraged to apply directly to General MacArthur - "if you have a problem, write a letter, this is what democracy means" - and so write they did. MacArthur received over 500,000 letters, letters of entreaty, rage, gratitude, complaint, even adoration. 12-year-old Fumi Tanaka has a problem - her beautiful and beloved older sister, Sumiko, has disappeared. Determined to find her, Fumi enlists the help of her new classmate Aya, forcibly repatriated with her father from Canada after the war. Together, they write to MacArthur and deliver their letter into the reluctant hands of Corporal Matt Matsumoto, a Japanese-American GI whose job it is to translate the endless letters. When weeks pass and they hear nothing from Matt, the girls take matters into their own hands, venturing into the dangerous world of the black markets, dance halls and Ginza bars. Down its dark alleyways, school teacher Kondo Sensei is hidden, scratching a second living as a translator of love letters. Deftly weaving rich, interlocking storylines, The Translation of Love shows how war irrevocably shapes the lives of both the occupied and the occupiers, and how resilience, friendship and love transcend cultures and borders
