Softcover, 316 pp.

On Good Friday, 1981, Rujen Keju and his two sons come face to face with their complicated inheritance-one that includes years of atomic testing and the continued military presence of the U.S. in the Pacific. In this highly original work, novelist Robert Barclay weaves together characters and stories from mythological times with those of the present day to give readers a rare and unsparing look at life in the contemporary Pacific.
