The Buddha in the Attic free pdf This title is winner of the Pen/Faulkner Award for Fiction 2012 and Finalist for the 2011 National Book Award, and the 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prize. In eight incantatory sections, "The Buddha in the Attic" traces the women's extraordinary lives, from their arduous journey by boat, where they exchange photographs of their husbands, imagining uncertain futures in an unknown land- to their arrival in San Francisco and their tremulous first nights as new wives- to their backbreaking work picking fruit in the fields and scrubbing the floors of white women in their homes- to their struggles to master a new language and a new culture- to their experiences in childbirth, and then as mothers, raising children who will ultimately reject their heritage and their history- and, to the deracinating arrival of war. In language that has the force and the fury of poetry, Julie Otsuka has written a singularly spellbinding novel about the American dream.
