HISTORICAL FICTION: “Triumphant. . . . Big, visceral, achingly humane.” — Jennifer Egan
One summer night in prewar Japan, eleven-year-old Billy Reynolds takes snapshots at his parents’ dinner party. That same evening his father Anton — a prominent American architect — begins a torrid affair with the wife of his master carpenter. A world away in New York, Cameron Richards rides a Ferris wheel with his sweetheart and dreams about flying a plane. These three men will all draw together to shape the fate of a young girl caught in the midst of one of World War II’s most horrific events — the 1945 firebombing of Tokyo.
Exquisitely rendered, The Gods of Heavenly Punishment tells the stories of families on both sides of the Pacific: their loves and infidelities, their dreams and losses — and their shared connection to one of the most devastating acts of war in human history.
