Comments

In a change from the normal format, Frances Snyder presents "The Facts Behind the Fiction," a fascinating look at the research she did when writing her novel, Chrysanthemum Girl, set in WWII Okinawa. Frances became something of an expert on the shortages, hardships, and harsh military policies of wartime Japan. She delved into the large and small details of daily life, including local traditions and beliefs, farming practices, and essential information about plants and animals. All of this brought color and texture to the novel, the story of the effects of war on civilian life, and one family's struggle to survive in the presence of overwhelming challenges.
