Citizen 13660, revised edition

By Miné Okubo
Introduction by Christine Hong
Mine Okubo was one of over one hundred thousand people of Japanese descent - nearly two-thirds of whom were American citizens - who were forced into "protective custody" shortly after Pearl Harbor. Citizen 13660, Okubo's graphic memoir of life in relocation centers in California and Utah, illuminates this experience with poignant illustrations and witty, candid text. Now available with a new introduction by Christine Hong and in a wide-format artist edition, this graphic novel can reach a new generation of readers and scholars.

Reviews

"Originally published in 1946, Citizen 13660 is a documentation of life inside the World War II "relocation centers" for those of Japanese ancestry. This oft-overlooked portion of American history is brought poignantly to life by Okubo's expressive ink drawings and accompanying text. . . . Without a doubt, this book should be on required reading lists for high schools across the country."—Foreword Reviews

"This forerunner to the modern graphic memoir is a must read, both for the important - and shameful - period of American history it documents and its poignant beauty."—Printers Row , The Chicago Tribune

"This graphic memoir has a unique place in the literature for its presentation of the experience through the eyes and hands of a great artist. Get a copy and study the drawings. It will come as a revelation for the many who have never seen it."—Chizu Omori, International Examiner
